The RSO recommends that each contamination survey be documented and the records sent to the RSO. The minimum requirement is that at least one weekly written report must be sent to the RSO for each radiation handling laboratory during periods of active use and a monthly report must be sent for each cold room, counting room, or storage room.
Conduct a weekly contamination survey (form), during periods of active use, in all laboratories used to handle unsealed radioactive materials , and send (or FAX (656-8876) the reports weekly to the RSO.
No Use Radiation Survey Form: If you do not use any radioactive materials in any particular week, send a weekly "inactive" (= no manipulation of radioactive materials) report. If the period of inactivity extends more than 3 consecutive weeks, conduct an area survey and/or wipe test for the 4th week. If you would like to use a web-based form to send a weekly inactive report, use this link.
