(a) No person shall cause, suffer, allow or permit the possession or use of any analytical x-ray equipment unless it is operated in accordance with the following procedures:
1. All safety devices, including but not limited to, warning lights, warning indicators, and safety interlocks as required by this subchapter shall be maintained in a fully functional operating condition. These safety devices shall be tested for proper functioning as recommended by the manufacturer or once every six months and records kept of all such testing.
2. All safety devices, including but not limited to, warning lights, warning indicators, and safety interlocks originally provided at the time of the installation of the analytical x-ray equipment, but not otherwise specified by this subchapter, shall be maintained in a fully functional operating condition. An exemption may be made, subject to the approval by the Department, when the operational procedures prohibit the normal functioning of these safety devices. Records of these exemptions shall be kept.
3. In addition to and not in substitution for the applicable requirements of subchapter 7 (Radiation Surveys and Personnel Monitoring) of this chapter, all personnel operating, repairing and aligning analytical x-ray equipment shall be provided with appropriate finger or wrist personnel monitoring equipment. The reported dose equivalent shall be recorded on Form BRP-26, "Current Occupational External Radiation Exposure," or on a clear and legible form containing all the information required on BRP-26. This reported dose equivalent shall be clearly identified as resulting from exposure to analytical x-rays.
4. A radiation survey shall be made before a new installation is placed in routine operation and whenever changes are made that could adversely affect radiation protection, as required by subchapter 7 (Radiation Surveys and Personnel Monitoring). Records shall be maintained showing the results of such surveys as required by subchapter 8 (Records) of this chapter.
