  • Federal statutes and regulations and Executive Order 12196 require that all federal agencies establish occupational safety and health programs for their employees. The Department of Energy (DOE) occupational safety and health program requires that all employees be informed of hazards in their workplace and how to minimize the risk to themselves, their fellow workers and members of the general public from exposure to those hazards. One of the objectives of this training course is to meet these information requirements as they pertain to radiological hazards. A second objective of this course is to provide you with sufficient information concerning themore » rules related to radiation safety to permit you to fulfill your individual responsibilities. 4 figs., 2 tabs.« less
  • This document consists of the instructor's guide for an employee's orientation course on radiation safety. Included are learning objectives, purpose of instruction, definition of terms, radiation sources, biological damage by radiation, and allowable radiation limits. 25 figs. (FSD)

  • Radiological worker training is the basic building block for any additional radiological training you may receive. Upon completing radiological worker training, you will have the basic knowledge needed to work safely, using proper radiological practices, in areas where radiological hazards exist. You will also have a better understanding of the hazards and responsibilities associated with radiological work to help prevent the carelessness that can occur when working continually with or around radioactive material. This course does not qualify you for any specific radiological work. You may be required to take additional training at individual facilities to address facility- and job-specificmore » hazards and procedures.« less
