Radiation Safety Index > Pregnancy Declaration

All female radiation workers must read USNRC Regulatory Guide 8.13 "Instruction Concerning Prenatal Radiation Exposure", listed in Appendix C of the Radiation Safety Manual or from the link provided. Female radiation workers have the option to report confirmed pregnancies at the earliest possible date to their supervisor and to the RSO. The reporting is voluntary, however, it is prudent for the pregnant woman to consult with the RSO regarding safe work practices. Such employees shall, at the discretion of the RSO, be transferred to duties involving negligible or no radiation hazard to the developing embryo or fetus. It is the supervisor's responsibility to inform female radiation workers of this regulation.
