Personnel Monitoring Policy


Individuals likely to receive 10% of the annual limit, or 500 mrem per year, will be provided with radiation dosimeters. EHRS staff will determine which individuals or groups require monitoring.


This policy affects all occupationally exposed personnel who work with radioactive material or x-ray equipment at the University of Pennsylvania and associated facilities.
