AGREEMENT STATE REPORT - SOURCE DELIVERED TO THE WRONG FACILITY

The following information was received from the state of Ohio via email:

"JSW Steel (OH license # 31201420001) located in Mingo-Junction, Ohio reported that they sent a mold to RTI in Titusville, PA with a source still in the mold on June 2, [2020]. The device is a Berthold LB 300 ML series with a 4 mCi Co-60 source. JSW contacted AM Health and Safety to go to RTI and secured the source in a container. AM Health and Safety is planning on shipping the source back to JSW Steel next week once the transportation paperwork is completed."

Ohio Event Report No.: OH200002

THIS MATERIAL EVENT CONTAINS A "LESS THAN CAT 3" LEVEL OF RADIOACTIVE MATERIAL

Sources that are "Less than IAEA Category 3 sources," are either sources that are very unlikely to cause permanent injury to individuals or contain a very small amount of radioactive material that would not cause any permanent injury. Some of these sources, such as moisture density gauges or thickness gauges that are Category 4, the amount of unshielded radioactive material, if not safely managed or securely protected, could possibly - although it is unlikely - temporarily injure someone who handled it or were otherwise in contact with it, or who were close to it for a period of many weeks. For additional information go to http://www-pub.iaea.org/MTCD/publications/PDF/Pub1227_web.pdf

Note: This device is assigned an IAEA Category 3 value based on the actual radioactivity of the source, not on the device type. (Reference IAEA RG-G-1.9)

THIS MATERIAL EVENT CONTAINS A "NOT RECORDED" LEVEL OF RADIOACTIVE MATERIAL
