Radioactive Sources and Explosives

This article describe the requirements for radioactive sources and explosives (permit to work, transporation, handling and storage).

1. Radioactive Sources Permit to Work

All operations involving the use of radioactive sources must be performed under the Permit to Work system.


The radioactive sources must be stored in clearly marked approved storage containers (locked and keys with Drilling Supervisor) on each rig inside their appropriate shields. The storage containers must be fixed by welding, bolting or chains and must be located as far as is practical from regularly occupied working areas . . .
