DOE-HDBK-1132-99
1.1.3
Hazards Separation . Hazards separation design considerations include
establishing the attendant degree of risk, and taking into account the potential for
Nuclear Facility Building Layout . In addition to the usual industrial safety
required in a nuclear facility, the following features should be considered:
Rectangular and windowless storage buildings should be used, where
practical.
Provide for efficient cleaning, maintenance, and ease of inspection in the
facility layout.
Consider occupancy time, spacing, remote handling equipment, and
shielding.
Air locks or enclosed vestibules should be considered for access through
confinement barriers.
1.1.4
Hazardous Areas .
Alarms and Interlocks . Provide sufficient alarms and interlocks in hazardous
areas, such as radioactive spaces or spaces with inert atmospheres Prevent
inadvertent entry into hazardous areas by providing cautionary systems or
interlocks. Additional considerations include--
Consider automatic monitoring and alarm devices to detect the presence
of significant levels or increases of radioactivity or other hazardous
materials.
Consider the need for visual alarm devices within the special facility in
addition to audible alarm devices.
Provide criticality alarms or evacuation alarms to preclude or minimize
exposures outside the facility.
