Approximately one week before the beginning of a new wear period you will receive a new shipment.
Return the used dosimeters, together with their corresponding controls for the same wear period, in the LANDAUER return envelopes.
Please keep all the grey Luxel+ dosimeter holders. They should be re-used for your new dosimeters.
See the non-returned badges on myLDR, our interactive service network. With this function, you can view dosimeters from your account that have not been received at LANDAUER.
If a dosimeter is not used for any reason, do not remove it from the cellophane wrappers, otherwise it will be analysed. Any dosimeter received back at LANDAUER still in its cellophane wrapper will be reported as unused.
Note that it is illegal to send radioactively or biologically contaminated material through the post.
If you suspect your dosimeters may be contaminated you should consult your RPA or safety officer to decontaminate them. In the case of radioactively contaminated dosimeters please advise us that the dosimeters were contaminated.
If during a wear period, one of your employees has or supposes to have undergone a significant radiation, it is necessary to proceed immediately to an emergency return of his dosimeter.
The irradiated dosimeter must be sent separately, if possible with an appropriate control. It should not be returned with other dosimeters.
All dosimeters and holders remain the property of LANDAUER. A dosimeter (including a control dosimeter) is considered lost if it is not returned within 60 days after the end wear date. There is a replacement fee for each dosimeter not returned.
If a dosimeter issued to a classified person becomes lost or damaged, an investigation to
estimate the actual dose received during the monitoring period is required. The results of the
assessment, together with an estimated dose should be sent to LANDAUER.
The estimation will be recorded as a special entry in the dose record. Dose records for classified persons must be complete.
