AGREEMENT STATE REPORT - SUSPECTED RADIATION BADGE OVEREXPOSURE

"The RSO called to notify the Agency that for the April '07 dosimeter report, a reading of 5,131 mrem was assigned to the dosimeter worn by a radiography trainee. This individual is no longer employed by the licensee.

"According to existing radiation reports, the trainee was not actively involved in performing industrial radiography for the said time period. He also claims to have stored his badge in a trailer for at least five days of the month opening a question to deliberate tampering. Radiography with Ir-192 was being performed in the general area but the trainee alleges that his participation was limited to a barricade watch. Other personnel with Conam support this recollection. [The Texas Department of Health Incident Investigation Program] will submit a completed report when the licensee and the Agency complete the investigation."

AGREEMENT STATE REPORT - LOST & RECOVERED TROXLER GAUGE

An employee of Applied Geotechnical Engineering Consultants was using a Troxler moisture density gauge at a jobsite. He left the gauge on the tailgate of his truck and then drove away. The gauge fell off and was picked up by a member of the public, who in turn called the licensee. The licensee picked up the gauge. The state did not have detailed information concerning the Troxler gauge, however, they did say the sources were in the locked position. Typically the Troxler gauge has sources of Am-241/Be (40 mCi) and Cs-137 (8 mCi).
