Criticality Safety Basics for INL Emergency Responders Page: 5 of 84
This report is part of the collection entitled: Office of Scientific & Technical Information Technical Reports and was provided to Digital Library by the UNT Libraries Government Documents Department.
This document is a modular self-study guide about criticality safety principles
for Idaho National Laboratory emergency responders. This guide provides basic
criticality safety information for people who, in response to an emergency, might
enter an area that contains much fissionable (or fissile) material. The information
should help responders understand unique factors that might be important in
responding to a criticality accident or in preventing a criticality accident while
responding to a different emergency.
This study guide specifically supplements web-based training for firefighters
(0INL1226) and includes information for other Idaho National Laboratory first
responders such as radiological control personnel.
For interested readers, this guide includes clearly marked additional
information that will not be included on tests. The additional information
includes historical examples (Been there. Done that.), as well as facts and more
in-depth information (Did you know ...).
INL criticality safety personnel revise this guide as needed to reflect program
changes, user requests, and better information. Revision 0, issued May 2007,
established the basic text. Revision 1 incorporates operation, program, and
training changes implemented since 2007. Revision 1 increases focus on first
responders because later responders are more likely to have assistance and
guidance from facility personnel and subject matter experts. Revision 1 changes
are not marked because the revision also completely reorganized the training to
better emphasize information identified by firefighter trainers as most important.
The changes are based on and consistent with changes made to course 0INL1226.
