Personal radiation monitoring

Occupationally exposed personnel who are likely to receive a total effective dose in excess of 1 mSv in any one year must wear an approved personal monitoring device (TLD badge). Each area controls the local distribution of TLD badges to their staff, including maintaining records of doses received by personnel. Adverse reports will be actioned as necessary, and notified to the Radiation Safety Officer.

The use of TLD badges is identified during the WSA process, and is overseen by the Radiation Safety Officer.

A list of the appropriate contact persons for radiation monitoring in your area is available in section 1 of the Radiation Management Plan.

Deakin University acknowledges the traditional land owners of present campus sites.
