  • A table of DOE-STD-1027-92 Hazard Category 3 threshold quantities, in units of curies and grams, is presented for the International Commission on Radiological Protection-30 (ICRP-30) list of 757 radionuclides. The specific activity (Ci/gm) used to convert the threshold quantities from curies to grams is also calculated and tabulated. The half-life values used to generate the specific activities are those specified in ICRP-30.
  • Data tables are presented to provide consistency in safety analysis work at the Los Alamos National Laboratory. Included are calculated specific activities and calculated hazard classification Category 2 threshold quantities for radionuclides listed in DOE-STD-1027-92. Some calculated threshold quantities differ from the DOE thresholds. Calculated specific activities are also presented for plutonium material types or mixtures.
  • Los Alamos facilities containing significant radiological hazards have been reclassified according to DOE-SID 1027-92, a recently issued guide for hazard classification. DOE-STD 1027-92 was provided in support of DOE Order 5480.23 to identify which facilities would be governed under DOE 5480.23 requirements; these would presumably be called nuclear facilities. This new classification has affected the original list of 18 LANL nuclear facilities by increasing it to 39. It has also lowered the classification of TA-55-4, the plutonium processing facility containing highest intrinsic hazard at LANL, from the highest classification to an intermediate classification. This presentation addresses the impact of thesemore » changes in the nuclear facility list in the areas of radiological health, safety analysis documentation, and risk management.« less
