A radioactive instrument or article contains Class 7 (radioactive) material in gaseous or non-dispersible solid form as a component part.
These are some important questions that must be answered before preparing packages of instruments or articles containing radioactive material for shipment:
• What is required to transport radioactive materials from one location to another?
• How much radioactive material is allowed in an instrument or article containing a radioactive source?
• How much radioactive material can I ship in a single package?
• How do I package instruments or articles containing radioactive material for shipping?
• Do I need to include a shipping paper?
• How do I label and mark my package?
• What are the allowable radiation levels from the device and package?
• Do I need special training in order to ship instruments or articles containing radioactive materials?
This course is for workers who require training on general awareness and familiarization of DOT’s HAZMAT regulations, function specific training concerning the preparation for movement of articles containing radioactive materials, general safety training, and security awareness training.
This course is intended to provide training to help meet training requirements specified in Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations, Part 172, Subpart H of the U.S. DOT, The International Air Transport Association, and regulations of the U.S. NRC, Agreement States, and other governmental agencies. The responsibilities for HAZMAT safety are shared by everyone who handles HAZMAT shipments, from the shipper to the carrier. Training is the best means of preventing hazardous material incidents and HAZMAT Safety begins with you!
