Presentation Transcript

  1. Moving Radioactive Material • All radioactive orders, transfers, or shipments must be pre-approved by OEHS • Ordered material is delivered to OEHS, where the box and pig are surveyed and will be delivered to your lab by the health physics staff. • You are responsible for surveying the inner vial for contamination

  2. Material Security All radioactive material must be secured from tampering or removal by unauthorized persons. • • Loss of material must be reported to the RSO immediately Lock the lab door in your absence

  3. Radioactive Waste Do’s • Fill out waste tags immediately • Record isotope, activity and initials each time waste is added • One isotope per waste container • Separate solids and liquids • Use secondary containment for liquid waste • Ensure proper seal on all containers • Deactivate potential pathogens with bleach • Wipe containers for contamination before pick up

  4. Radioactive waste Don’ts • Do NOT mix potentially dangerous chemicals Do NOT discard sharps into regular waste Do NOT dispose of liquid waste into solid waste boxes Do NOT dump liquid waste down the drains Do NOT overfill waste containers (>¾) Do NOT mix incompatible chemicals Do NOT mix isotopes Do NOT remove radioactive waste without OEHS approval Do NOT put leaded pigs in the Rad waste • • • • • • • •
