Overexposure to Radiographer

The licensee radiographer's dosimetry report for July 2016 recorded a dose of 0.055 Sv (5.5 rem), bringing his total dose to 0.064 Sv (6.4 rem), which is above the statutory limit of 0.05 Sv annually (5 rem) for a radiation worker. The Radiation Safety Officer believes the radiographer may not have been properly distancing himself from the source while performing radiography in an enclosed area. NRC EN52199
