To manage easily your shipments, LANDAUER proposes a simple procedure to ship back your dosimeters.
Approximately one week before the beginning of the next wear period, delivery of new dosimeters will be effectivre.
Store them in a radiation-free area until the start of the next wear period. On the first day of this period, exchange the dosemeters worn during the previous wear period with the new one.
Return the used dosimeters, together with their corresponding controls for the same wear period, in the LANDAUER return envelopes.
Please keep all the grey Luxel+ dosimeter holders. They should be re-used with the new dosimeters.
Browse the non-returned badges on myLDR, our interactive web based platform. You can view dosemeters from your account that have not been received by LANDAUER.
If a dosimeter is not used for any reason, do not remove it from the cellophane wrappers, otherwise it will be analysed. Any dosimeter received back at LANDAUER still in its cellophane wrapper will be reported as unused.
Note that it is illegal to send radioactively or biologically contaminated material through the post.
If you suspect your dosimeters to be contaminated, you should consult your RPA or RSO to decontaminate them. Call as soon as possible our Customer Service to advise us that it has happened as it may affect the dose.
If during a wear period, one of your employees has or supposes to have received a significant radiation dose, it is necessary to proceed immediately to an emergency return of his dosimeter.
The irradiated dosimeter must be sent separately, if possible with an appropriate control dosimeter. It should not be returned with other dosimeters.
All dosimeters and holders remain the property of LANDAUER. A dosimeter (including a control dosimeter) is considered lost if it is not returned within 60 days after the end wear date. There is a replacement fee for each dosimeter not returned.
If a dosimeter issued to a classified/category A worker is lost or damaged, an investigation to estimate the actual dose received during the monitoring period is required. The results of the assessment, together with an estimated dose should be sent to LANDAUER.
Your estimation will be recorded as a special entry in the dose record. Dose records for classified persons must be complete.
