Lab Survey Report

Surveys must be performed after every use of radioactive materials. A documented contamination survey consisting of wipes, analyzed with a liquid scintillation counter (LSC) or gamma counter, and use of a portable survey meter (for other than H-3), is required for each active radioactive materials lab and waste storage area at least once each month that radioactive materials are used. If no radioactive material is used during the month, no survey is required (report the lab location as "inactive"). The Survey Report is due at EH&S on the first day of the month to report the status of the lab during the previous month.
