  Modes of Transportation. Around the world radioactive materials are shipped by air, rail, truck and water. Radioactive materials are shipped by three of these four modes in Utah. Air transport is used for short lived radiopharmaceuticals. Rail transport is used when materials are heavy or bulky and truck transport is used for everything else. Model Recovery Procedure for Response to a Radiological Transportation Incident Stay Time Tables, Exposure Rates, Dose Guidelines (CDPHE) This information was developed by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment Radioactive Materials Unit for use by emergency response personnel.

Shipment of radioactive materials, accidental spills or releases of these substances seldom occur. Very few emergency responders have ever had to deal with transportation accidents involving radioactive materials, and these accidents.

Genre/Form: Guideline: Additional Physical Format: Online version: Radioactive materials transportation information and incident guidance. Washington, D.C.: U.S. Radioactive Materials: Transportation and Incident Response (PDF) (27 pp, 8, K, About PDF) This guide contains questions and answers that people might ask if there was a transportation incident.

This booklet was written to answer questions most frequently asked by fire fighters, law enforcement officers, and emergency medical services personnel. The booklet is not intended as a substitute for the US Department of Transportation (DOT) Emergency Response Guidebook(ERG) for hazardous materials incidents.

This review provides guidance on the Department of Transportation (DOT) Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR) contained in Ti Code of Federal Regulations (49 CFR) Partswhich govern the packaging and shipment of radioactive material.

These materials have an excellent safety record when packaged, labeled, marked and transported. The guide discusses the need to prepare the laboratory to participate in the incident response by defining and establishing discreet work areas and operational guidelines for the various laboratory activities, based primarily on the levels of radioactivity being processed and the flow of radioactive material through the laboratory, and by establishing customized laboratory.

Hazardous Material Identification and Response Resources. First responders use several resources to identify hazardous materials and respond appropriately: • The Emergency Response Guidebook.

8 (ERG), issued by DOT, aids in the rapid identification of the specific or generic hazards of the material(s) involved in a transportation incident. Guidance in relation to the civil transport of radioactive material by road and rail ONR's mission is to protect society by securing safe nuclear operations.

ONR Transport's contribution to achieving the mission is to regulate safety and security during the transport of radioactive material by road and rail in Great Britain.

The safe and secure transport of radioactive material requires a framework that combines regulatory requirements, package certification, inspections and a monitoring system. The IAEA assists Member States in strengthening this framework through the implementation of its transport regulations, ensuring the safe and secure packaging and handling of these materials.

The book is intended to summarize commercial vehicle rules and regulations and is not intended to be used for legal guidance or as a substitute for applicable local, state and federal statutes. While every attempt has been made to ensure the completeness and accuracy of the information contained in this book, it is not.

Reg Guide Procedures for Picking Up and Receiving Packages of Radioactive Material. It is supported by six IAEA Safety Guides which provide explanation and guidance for the SSR-6 requirements to facilitate harmonized implementation.

The SSR-6 Regulations apply to the transport of radioactive material by all modes on land, water, or in the air, including transport that is incidental to the use of the radioactive material.

Abstract. Packaging, transport, and storage of radioactive materials must be done in a safe and secure manner.

The varied physical characteristics of radioactive materials, coupled with unique chemical attributes, require isolation and specific protection schemes to ensure safe operations as well as protection of human health and the environment.

Radioactive Materials (RAM) Licensing. The Radiologic Health Branch (RHB) licenses users of radioactive material and registers persons possessing generally licensed devices (GLD) containing radioactive materials.

Users of radioactive materials include: Universities and laboratories to conduct scientific research.OSHA guidance that is available to protect workers from the diverse hazards encountered in laborato-ries.

The extent of detail on specific hazards provid-ed in this document is dependent on the nature of each hazard and its importance in a laboratory set-ting.

In addition to information on OSHA standards and guidance that deal with laboratory.This document contains guidance for the emergency medical response to a hazardous material incident. It includes information on the role of responders in the community, the Occupational Health and Safety Administration's response principles, and practical recommendations and best practices on a variety of topics, including pre-transport patient.
