Document Review of Dosimetry Reports

Document Review of Dosimetry Reports

signaturesWhen establishing a radiation safety program, be sure to assign the responsibility of reviewing the dosimetry reports to one individual. Whether you are exchanging dosimeters on a quarterly basis, monthly basis, or some other frequency, a specific person needs to own the responsibility of reviewing the reports and notifying individuals of their results as necessary.

When the review takes place, the responsible individual should make record of their review. This can be as simple as writing the date of evaluation on the report itself and signing off on it. The results for the current reporting period should of course be reviewed for each individual, as well as the annual dose to date. Remember there are notification requirements that must also be adhered to.
