Chapter 9: Radiological Safety

The purpose of this program is to maintain personnel and environment radiation doses below regulatory limits and as low as reasonably achievable, to prevent unplanned or accidental exposure to ionizing radiation, and to prevent release of radioactive material into the environment.

It covers the design and operation of facilities, limiting exposure of personnel and environment to radiation (through access, radiological work, and dosimetry requirements), and the use, storage, handling, and disposal of radioactive and nuclear materials.

It applies to workers, and their line management, supervisors, and points of contact, who are engaged in those activities or access accelerator facilities and auxiliary support facilities that are controlled for radiological hazards, including machine shops, research laboratories, and service buildings.
