Radiation Dosimeter Badges


Radiation dosimeter badges are provided to monitor occupational radiation exposure for those workers who use radiation sources and devices under certain conditions.  Assigned LSUHSC-NO badges should not be used to measure occupational doses received at non-LSUHSC facilities.

If you are issued a dosimeter badge due to potential exposure at a non-LSUHSC facility, notify the LSUHSC Radiation Safety Officer.  The LSUHSC Radiation Safety Officer will contact the Radiation Safety Officer at the non-LSUHSC facility.  The Radiation Safety Officer at the non-LSUHSC facility will then notify the LSUHSC Radiation Safety Officer if the LSUHSC employee exceeds 20% of the applicable regulatory exposure limit.  The LSUHSC Radiation Safety Officer will then notify the LSUHSC employee of their total exposure.

 

Radiation dosimeter badge use conditions:

  • Individuals handling only Carbon 14 or Tritium (H3) are not required to be on the badge program.
  • Anyone handling Beta emitters; P-32, P-33, or S-35 are required to wear a badge.
