Training and Tools
- DOE Site Radiological Programs Self-Assessment Tool (SAT) ("zip" file).
The DOE SAT was developed by HS-22 in order to assist DOE sites in self-evaluating the state of programs related to the clearance of materials and equipment reuse for recycle. The SAT is an easy-to-use Access database file that provides a series of questions that will help you assess the program at your facility. The SAT provides you with a direct feedback based on the answers that you provided and what requirements you would need to fulfill and enhance your program. The only requirement to use the SAT is to have the Microsoft® "Access 2007" (or later) program installed on your computer. Access is a database program that comes within the Microsoft® Office Suite or sold separately and is commonly installed on all DOE computers. If you do not have Microsoft® Office or Microsoft® Access please call your Office of Information Technology (OIT) for additional support.
- RESidual RADiation (RESRAD) Family of Codes:
The RESRAD family of Codes are a series of software codes developed by Argonne National Labs (ANL) which are designed to estimate radiation doses and risks from RESidual RADioactive materials. The RESRAD computer codes are important tools that are widely used by the Department, other Federal agencies, and the commercial nuclear industry as well as by international organizations and businesses engaged in the remediation of areas contaminated with radioactive materials.
- Radiation Risk Assessment Software: The Clean Air Act Assessment Package (CAP88) and CAP88 PC
CAP-88 is an EPA Software designed for the assessment of dose and risk from radionuclide emissions to air in order to be in compliance with the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAPs) for Radionuclides.

- MARSSIM (Multi-Agency Radiation Survey and Site Investigation Manual)
- MARSSIM Manual (2002)
- Request for MARSSIM Revision Input 2
The MARSSIM Steering Committee comprised by members of the DOE, EPA, DoD and the NRC, will be revising the MARSSIM manual. The need for a revision is based on new and best available technology, as well as the implementation of "lessons learned" since the development of MARSSIM. The MARSSIM Steering committee is requesting additional input from MARSSIM users around the country and from the different agencies that will help in the development and refinement for an improved MARSSIM document. The link above provides the request for input by the MARSSIM Steering Committee as well as the POC's and steps needed to provide contribution towards the revision of the MARSSIM.
- MARSAME (Multi Agency Radiation Survey and Assessment of Materials and Equipment) Manual (DOE/HS-0004)
The MARSAME manual (2009) is a supplement to the MARSSIM. MARSAME provides technical information on approaches for planning, implementing, assessing, and documenting surveys to determine proper disposition of materials and equipment (M&E) at the DOE.
- Multi-Agency Radiological Laboratory Analytical Protocols Manual (MARLAP)
The MARLAP Manual addresses the need for a nationally consistent approach to producing radioanalytical laboratory data that meet a projects or programs data requirements.
- Radioactive Release Emergency Response/Operational Guidelines
Provides information and resources concerning the development of Operational Guidelines as part of planning guidance for protection and recovery following Radiological Dispersal Device (RDD) and/or Improvised Nuclear Device (IND) incidents.
