sonnel who enter radioactive storage areas or operate
the tester, or at other times, as directed by the LRPO,
shall wear beta-gamma type film badges or TLD badges.
The Surgeon General has determined that neutron
dosimetry badges need not be worn by personnel using
MEDICAL RECORDS. The responsibility for
(Photodosimetry Report) or a computer equivalent form
(Dosimeter Issue Listing) supplied by the U.S. Army
Ionizing Radiation Dosimetry Center, is a function of
each unit which uses the tester.
a. The person responsible for maintaining
personnel dosimetry records shall be so designated in
writing (AR 40-14) as the custodian of medical records.
The custodian shall maintain DD Form 1141 (Record of
Occupational Exposure to lonizaton Radiation), and DD
Form 1952 (Dosimeter Application and Record of
Occupational Radiation Exposure).
b. Personnel can obtain the total amount of
radiation to which they have been exposed, and other
related data, by contacting either their LRPO, the
custodian of medical records, or the Chief, U.S. Army
Ionizing Radiation Dosimetry Center, ATTN: AMXTM-S-
LR-DN, Lexington, KY 40511-5102.
a. It is mandatory that the testers be stored in
locked, unoccupied and isolated areas. Fire resistant
structures which provide protection from the weather
shall be used when they are available. Only work that is
procedures shall be performed in these storage areas.
Equipment (MTOE) authorizes one AN/PDR-27 Radiac
Set or equivalent for each work group requiring the
protection of radiation monitoring.
c. An instrument survey, using the AN/PDR-27
or equivalent, shall be performed before the tester is
placed in a storage area. This is done to determine
background radiation level of the storage area, thus
providing a measurement baseline in the event of
d. An instrument survey of the area surrounding
any new storage facility shall be made immediately after
radioactive material has been placed in the storage
facility. The survey shall be recorded, and shall contain
the information which is detailed in Para4-23.
e. Maximum dose equivalence rate within the
storage area shall not exceed 2.5 millirems per hour
a. The number of testers that can be safely
stored, in either occupied buildings or in occupied areas,
is determined by shielding, the distance from the source
and that part of the area which is occupied. Maximum
dose equivalence rates outside of storage areas that are
within occupied buildings and occupied areas shall not
exceed 0.25 mrem/hr.
b. A tester which has been packed in its
approved carrying case may be stored in a supply area
requirements have been met:
(1) The cased tester shall be locked in a metal
(2) The storage cabinet shall be isolated and
located as far as possible from personnel work stations.
(3) All required radiation caution signs shall be
displayed on the storage cabinet and on the door leading
into the storage area.
