True, our license permits the gauge to be stored anywhere.
False, the nuclear gauge should be returned to its authorized storage location at the end of each work day.
True, Prime's radioactive materials license requires documentation of each time a nuclear gauge was removed from it's authorized storage area.
False, signing out nuclear gauges is at the discretion of the technician.
True, Prime's radioactive materials license requires documentation of each time a nuclear gauge was returned to it's authorized storage area.
False, it's not a big deal if you forget to sign the gauge back in.

True, this is the safest place for the packet to be stored during transportation.
False, the nuclear gauge packet should be within arm's reach of the driver during transportation. This is so that the packet is visible to anyone entering the vehicle or so that it can be provided to law enforcement.
Within arm's reach of the driver
Locked in the nuke transport case
In the glove box
Left at the lab/shop so it does not get misplaced

Securely chained near the tailgate, away from passengers.
Securely chained to the cab end of the bed, near passengers.
True, as long as it has most of the same symbols it should be good.
False, there are specific labels for our nuclear gauge cases which are to be intact and in good condition during transport.
True, signing a gauge out of its storage area assumes your responsibility for proper care and appropriate use of all contents within the case.
False, it is the responsibility of whoever used that gauge & its contents previously.
True, Prime trucks are required to have a big orange sticker on the tailgate stating that they're transporting radioactive equipment.
False, this is not a requirement of Prime's radioactive materials license. Though it is critical to have the nuclear gauge packet available in the cab of the vehicle for law enforcement to inspect in the event of an accident or pull-over.
True, any gauge can be used on an ODOT project
False, only gauges which have been certified by ODOT may be used on ODOT projects.
True, the contractor could introduce new material to the site -or- the client could want a new area tested.
False, we're only on-site to test what we suppose we may be testing that day.
An extension of themselves. (Immediately within arm's reach and free of hazard.)
A beacon of light. (Placed in a well-lit area, visible from most places on-site.)
Dry as a scorpion in the Sahara Desert. (Dry & Dangerous.)
True, there are dozens to hundreds of people you don't know on construction sites who should not be assumed to be trustworthy. Your signature for taking the gauge out assumes your responsibility for both damage & theft/misplacement.
False, the gauge can simply stay near the truck while you test concrete or go into the job trailer.
The dump truck operator, for not spotting the hazard.
The testing technician, for not treating the gauge as an extension of themselves.
The technician responsible would indeed face administrative action & likely termination.
An extensive radiation pollution survey would have to be conducted on the job site, shutting down work for days -to- weeks while permanently damaging Prime CM&S reputation as a prestigious materials testing company.
Prime CM&S would have their license to handle radioactive materials & equipment in the state of Ohio suspended or revoked, damaging contractual obligations on dozens of sites to provide compaction testing.
All of the above are highly likely consequences.
