Question 95: 10 CFR 19.12 requires training (instruction)
of workers who enter a restricted area. Do individuals
receiving occupational doses in controlled areas need
Answer: Yes. They need training, but it is not
specifically required by 10 CFR 19.12 since this section
addresses only individuals working in or frequenting any
portion of a restricted area. The obvious intent of the
training (instruction) requirement of Part 19 is that
individuals who are permitted to receive occupational doses
within the occupational limits will receive appropriate
training. Although not explicitly stated in 10 CFR Parts
19 or 20, individuals who are to receive an occupational
dose in any area should receive appropriate training.
(Reference: 10 CFR 19.12).
