Below are current NISP resources that technicians should be familiar. Please select the link associated with the report to download a PDF and review. All NISP procedures posted on D&Z Radiological Services site are for information only. Verification of current revision is required prior to use.
This document provides basic instructions to operate common instruments used for radiation and contamination surveys. General descriptions, operating characteristics and limitations of these instruments are provided as attachments.
This document describes the process for performing and documenting radiological surveys.
This document describes when air samples must be collected and the processes for sample collection, determining airborne concentrations, and taking appropriate actions based on analytical results. Sampling methods are described for airborne particulates, iodine and noble gas.
This document describes the processes and instructions to establish boundaries, barriers, postings, and labels necessary to inform workers on the radiological hazards in the work area. Instructions are also included for actions required to maintain the integrity of boundaries for High Radiation Areas, Locked High Radiation Areas, and Very High Radiation Areas.
This document describes the controls in place to access High Radiation Areas and Locked High Radiation Areas.
This document describes the process for monitoring personnel for skin and clothing contamination and proper decontamination methods.
The purpose of this document is to provide guidance for the survey, release or control of materials from Radiological Controlled Areas.
This document provides instructions for the selection, operation and monitoring of HEPA ventilation and vacuum equipment used for radiological protection.
This document provides instructions to Radiation Protection personnel for establishing boundaries, postings, and controls in support of on-site radiography. This procedure only contains the specific requirements as they apply to Supplemental RPT providing job coverage. Site procedures will contain other actions for site RP personnel.
This document describes the processes and instructions for monitoring radiological work based on the radiological risk and the types of radiological hazards that may be present. Protective measures are described for each type of radiological hazard to guide job coverage technicians in minimizing personnel dose and the potential spread of contamination.
This document describes the core values and behaviors that are necessary to implement effective radiological protection fundamentals for the protection of workers and the public. Radiation protection personnel are expected to understand and apply these values and behaviors during the conduct of assigned work.
This document describes the process for training supplemental RP technicians to perform common tasks and maintain qualifications that are portable among nuclear sites.
This document describes standard definition of radiological terms used in the nuclear power industry and used in various Nuclear Industry Standard Processes (NISP).
This document describes the program for continuous performance improvement in the DZ Radiological Services Division. The objective of the program is to maintain high performance of DZ personnel at the stations by effective training, observations, and coaching. The goal of the program is to provide accurate performance feedback to employees, and provide a structured method for performance improvement, if required.
