GUIDE TO THE SAFE HANDLING OF RADIOISOTOPES IN HYDROLOGY (Safety Series, No. 20) A manual prepared by the IAEA Secretariat with the help of the Food and Agriculture Organi­ zation and the World Health Organization. It is not intended to be either regulatory or exhaustive but to present briefly the health and safety aspects involved in the use of radioisotopes in hydrology.

(ISBN 0 7) detail the safe working-practice rules that govern any work with radioisotopes. Under the Radioactive Substances Actestablishments intending to work with sealed or unsealed radioactive sources must first obtain one or more certificates of.

health and safety measures prescribed by the Agency. As a first step, it was considered an urgent task to provide users of radioisotopes with a manual of practice for the safe handling of these substances. The first edition of such a manual was published in and represented the first of the “Safety Series”, a series of manuals and codes.

For radioisotopes presenting an exposure hazard, or any millicurie quantities, some remote manipulation may be necessary. Use of tongs, forceps, pliers, etc., will lower the radiation dose to the hands and reduce contamination spread via gloves. Guide to the Safe Handling of Radioactive Materials in Research This guide is based on well-established radiological safety practices and our experience handling radio-active materials since We hope the guide will help keep you, your colleagues and the environment safe as you work with radioactive materials in your research.

Safety Glasses: You should wear safety glasses for any radioisotope procedure, but it is especially important whenever there is a potential for the build-up of pressure that could release a spray.

Radioisotopes are used in hydrology in two different ways: as sealed sources of radiation, and as tracers.

Radioactive sealed sources. Different kinds of gauges containing radioactive sealed sources have been developed for specific hydro- logical purposes. Radioisotope Safety. Radiation Safety is responsible for ensuring that all clinical and research use of radioactive materials throughout the Boston University Campuses and at the Boston Medical Center is performed safely for workers, patients, and the general public, and is in compliance with all applicable regulations.

Radioisotopes in Water Resources and the Environment (Updated May ) The use of environmental tracers and isotope hydrology techniques help to characterise ground and surface water resources. The use of nuclear technologies has helped to improve the management of water resources across many countries worldwide.

This booklet offers detailed and specific instructions for the handling of both sealed and unsealed sources of ionizing radiation.

The importance of organizing, planning, monitoring, and record-keeping is stressed in the introduction. Valuable technical hints are given as to shielding, design of. “Safe Handling of Radionuclides”, International Atomic Energy Agency, Safety Series No.

In addition, various textbooks and handbooks treat the subject of safe handling of radioisotopes in detail.

As radioisotopes are increasingly being used in various fields, the demand for larger quantities has risen and more complex handling facilities are in need in the isotope production laboratories.

Some of the recent developments in the use of radioisotopes in medical field have also. safe handling of radioisotopes The manual does not appear to distinguish between trivial and important sources in setting up procedures.

It would be the "small scale users" without the facilities available to others to which many of the rules need not apply. hydrology, especially through the development of routine techniques. Symposium in Tokyo The work of the second panel was followed up within three months at an international symposium held by the Agency on the application of radioisotopes in hydrology.

Abstract. With the growing application of radioactive materials in medical practice, this short book on the safe handling of radioactive isotopes is of great value. Although it is not intended as a complete manual on radiation safety but merely as a supplement to the work of the radiation protection officer, it contains much useful information.

Introduction Isotope hydrology is a proven tool in understanding hydrological processes such are recharge rate and recharge mechanism, surface water groundwater interaction, time scale of processes, origin of pollution etc.

employing radioisotopes or radiation sources but who are not involved in either the purchase and or disposal of the isotopes may be classified by the RSO/RSC as Incidental Users. Incidental Users also require training on the safe handling of radioisotopes though not as rigorous as that necessary for Project Users.

This training may be provided by. This chapter presents a brief introduction to radioisotopes, sources and types of radiation, applications, effects, and occupational protection.

The natural and artificial sources of radiations are discussed with special reference to natural radioactive decay series and artificial radioisotopes. Applications have played significant role in improving the quality of human life. Safety and Quality; Ultrasound; Vascular Radiology; Information.
