Receptacles for radioactive waste should be located by the work station so you
may conveniently dispose of waste without further contamination of the work
Preparation of Equipment/Materials
1. Assemble survey meters
The survey meter should be turned on and located in close proximity to the work
station. A pre-operational check is necessary before use to ensure the meter is
working properly. Position the detector so it is directed toward your work area.
This will enable you to conveniently monitor your hands as you work and also
can indicate when materials are removed from shielded containers. Always work
with the audio turned on. Your safety and the safety of others must take priority
over the concept that the sound may be disturbing to others. Know the location of
nearby phones. Post the Radiological Control Organization phone number
2. Equipment preparation
Use dedicated equipment/tools when appropriate. Cover/tape tools or equipment
used during the job to minimize radioactive contamination.
3. Assemble materials and supplies
Those supplies that would minimize small spills of radioactive materials should
be within arm's reach while handling unsealed radioactive materials.
4. Marking and labeling
The area/material is marked and labeled as appropriate (typically by
Radiological Control personnel).
Do NOT discard intact radioactive labels/markings in normal trash!
