Overexposure to Radiographer

During the performance of industrial radiography, the licensee radiographer approached the collimator without his survey meter. The radiographer positioned the collimator in preparation for an exposure shot without first retracting the 3.552 TBq (96 Ci) Se-75 source back inside the camera. Based on the dose assessment from the licensee, the radiographer received an overexposure of 1.76 Sv (176 rem) to each hand. At the time of the reporting of the event, there were no signs of skin reddening on the radiographer’s hands. The U.S. statutory limit for extremity doses is 0.5 Sv (50 rem).

Over Exposure of an Operator From a Puncture Wound During Work in an Active Glovebox

Routine glovebox work was taking place to empty a glovebox sump to clear a level alarm.
The operator's first action used the normal plant methods; no equipment is removed from the sump to do this.
As the alarm did not clear, the operator proceeded to remove and clean the probe, a task that the operator had performed before. The probe as supplied has to be adjusted to the correct length followed by making the item ‘glovebox ready’.
This includes the removal of any sharp edges.
