Radiation Safety

Radiation Safety

Everyone knows that the holiday season is a busy time of year, with many people rushing to avoid being late for holiday events, finish their shopping, or hurry home to enjoy their families. Now is a good time to remind everyone to take time to follow the established EHS practices at your facility and not take any short cuts to finish early or simply on time.
If you are running a radiation safety program, be sure that the individuals trained to receive shipments of radioactive material are following the established package receipt procedure. The procedure should clearly explain the entire process of how the package will be received from the vendor through being placed into the final on-site storage location.
When was the last time that you walked into the lab with the intent of looking at waste containers to see how lab workers are disposing of the waste being generated? If you cannot remember, I would suggest taking the time to tour all the labs and evaluate the waste disposal practices being followed.
