Radioactive Materials Usage Log Mobile App
Radioactive materials are frequently used in laboratory settings, and tracking their usage is important to understand how they are used and for what purpose.
How does it work?
Federal and local regulations or a laboratory safety committee may determine requirements that the whereabouts of these elements be documented. This app for Radioactive Materials Usage Log should be used by a laboratory to track radioactive materials and elements. General information about the isotopes should be documented upon receipt, including the date the substances were received, assay date, activity, volume, and chemical name. As the material is being used, the radiation worker should sign out the material and note the dose rate, the volume used, date, concentrations of the elements, and other details. The tracking of these materials is not only important to the health and safety of the employees, but also to environmental health. The disposal of hazardous waste can have negative, long-term impacts on the environment.
