The Role of The Rad Engineer: Different Sites, Different Scripts
J. L. Westbrook
Work planning and certain other radiation protection functions are important in determining controls that will not only help assure safety but will also keep doses as low as reasonably achievable (ALARA). At most Department of Energy (DOE) sites where nonroutine rad work is done, radiological engineers (also called ALARA engineers, ALARA coordinators, etc.) are involved in most such functions as principals and have signoff authority on the controls used.
