REMS Data Selection Help
To select data, select one or more of the data items from Section 1. This
determines the data fields that will be displayed in the results.
Total Number Monitored
The number of monitored individuals reported by the site.
Number With Meas. TED Dose
The number of individuals receiving TED doses above the minimum
detection level of the dosimetry.
Total Collective Dose (TED)
The sum of the TED for all selected individuals. TED is comprised
of the external dose (photon and neutron) and the internal dose. Internal
dose was calculated using the AEDE methodology from 1989 through 1992.
The CED methodology (50-year committed dose) was implemented in 1993.
Average Measurable Dose (TED)
The total collective TED divided by the number of individuals with
The collective Deep Dose Equivalent (ED) from penetrating photon
The collective Deep Dose Equivalent (ED) from penetrating neutron
The collective shallow dose equivalent to the whole body (EqD_SkWB).
Often referred to as the skin dose.
The collective shallow dose equivalent to the maximally exposed
extremity (EqD_ME). Often referred to as the extremity dose.
The 50-year collective committed effective dose equivalent (CED)
from intakes of radioactive material. Implemented in 1993.
The number of individuals receiving TED dose within specified dose
Sorting Data (optional)
Sorting is optional. To sort by a data type, click the radio button
corresponding to the data type by which to order the information. The data
type must be selected in order to sort by it. The data will be sorted in
descending order based on your selection. To clear sort selections,
you must select Clear Form.
Selecting Data Ranges
This section determines the ranges of data that you wish to view. Select
from one or more of the categories and specify the information you wish
to include in the results.
To specify ranges of data select entries from scrollable lists:
Scrolling a List
- In any of the scrollable data range fields, to view the current list of
entries, click the up and/or down scroll arrows to the right of the entries
Selecting One Entry from a List
Selecting Multiple Entries from a List
To select a group of sequential entries:
Click the first entry.
Hold down the SHIFT key, and click the final entry. (You can scroll the
list, if necessary, prior to clicking the final entry.)
To select a group of nonsequential entries:
Click the first entry.
Hold down the CONTROL key, and click subsequent entries. (You can scroll
the list, if necessary, prior to clicking additional entries.)
De-Selecting an Entry from a List
Hold down the CONTROL key and click the entry to be unselected.
Select Grouping Order
YOU MUST SELECT A GROUPING ORDER for each selected Data Range. If you
select a data item from Section 3, and do not select a grouping order in
Section 4, the query will not acknowledge the selection you made in Section
3. You must select a range in Section 4 AND grouping order in Section 4.
The Grouping Order determines the heirarchy of the results of your query.
For example, you could select Year as the 1st Grouping Order, and Sites
as the 2nd Grouping Order. This will return a list of results grouped by
Year, and then by Site.
You can only select one data item for each Group Order, but you may
select the same data item more than once. To clear selections made for
a subtotal sort, you must select Clear Form.
Display Results, Clear Form
- To view the results of your query based on selections made on the REMS
Data Selection form, click Display Results. While viewing results, you
have the option to save the results as a comma delimited file to your computer.
The results file is an ASCII file that may be imported into a database
or spreadsheet for further analysis.
Click on Clear Form to reset the form to the default values. In
many instances the individual selections cannot be reset without resetting
the entire form.
A site dosimetry record year may differ slightly
from the actual calendar year due to dosimeter processing schedules. Minor
variances (up to 2 weeks before or after January 1) are permissible as
long as the reporting period is consistent from year to year.
The DOE Program Office to which the operation/site/facility is currently assigned.
Operations Office that has responsibility for the reporting organization.
The term "Site" used here
and in the annual report on occupation exposure is
defined by the geographic location of the DOE facilities. This definition of a
"site" may differ from other uses of this term in other DOE reports.
For the REMS database, sites and facilities that contribute to a relatively
small percentage of the collective dose are grouped together under the
Operations Office responsible for the reporting organization.
Organization is typically the contractor or the DOE Operations/Field Office
that is required to monitor workers and report occupation exposure records to
|| FACILITY TYPE OR OPERATION(1)
|| Fuel/Uranium Enrichment
|| Fuel Fabrication
|| Fuel Processing
|| Maintenance and Support (site-wide)
|| Research, General
|| Research, Fusion
|| Waste Processing/Management
|| Weapons Fabrication and Testing
(1) Workers should be assigned to one facility type where the predominant amount of the individual's work takes place.
The monitoring status codes used in the REMS database have changed over
time. The first table shown below are the codes listed in the current
reporting requirements of DOE Manual 231.1-1A, which became effective 3-19-04.
| General Employee
|| An individual employed by the reporting organization as of the close
of the calendar year (see Item 1, above), a visiting research scientist, or a student.
| Member of the Public
|| A member of the public (which would include a visiting dignitary) who
visited during the calendar year.
|| An individual who is a DOE employee, DNFSB employee or contractor, a DOE
Headquarters or Field office support contractor, IAEA inspector, etc.
The status codes shown below are the monitoring status codes listed in DOE
Manual 5484.1 and DOE M 231.1-1. Some sites still report exposure records
using these codes even though DOE M 5484.1 is no longer in effect.
|| Any active employee of the reporting organization who works
with, or is in the proximity of, ionizing radiation or radioactive material and
who is monitored in accordance with DOE 5480.1B, Chapter XI.
|| For the purposes of this Order, an individual employed
by DOE or a DOE contractor who terminates his or her employment, an individual
who transfers to another DOE or contractor facility or office that results in
termination of radiation monitoring, an individual who begins a leave of absence
of greater than 12 months duration, or all employees of a contractor whose
contracts with DOE are terminated.
|| Any nonemployee visiting a facility that is operated by
Department of Energy (DOE) or a DOE contractor under circumstances other than as
a nonemployee radiation worker, requiring that he or she be monitored for
|Nonemployee Radiation Worker
|| An individual who is either a subcontractor to
a DOE contractor or who visits a DOE site to perform work for or in conjunction
with DOE or utilizes DOE facilities and who is monitored for occupational
exposure as required in DOE 5480.1B, Chapter XI.
