It is important to:
- never wear a dosimeter assigned to another user and do not to allow others to wear your assigned dosimeter;
- avoid taking your dosimeter home;
- wear body dosimeters at the assigned place on your body;
- wear ring dosimeters on the assigned hand and inside gloves facing the direction of radiation.
While our dosimeters are robust and withstand normal use, damage to dosimeters may prevent accurate dose assessment. So please take reasonable care of them.
When not wearing the dosimeter, the participant should store it in a radiation free area, preferably in a designated location. This location should be out of direct sunlight and away from excessive heat or radioactive sources.
LANDAUER can supply dosimeter boards, which can be mounted to aid the collection of returned dosimeters and the distribution of new dosimeters for your staff.
