Operational Health Physics Training
By H.J. Moe
ANL-88-26 Corrected
June 1992

Operational Health Physics Training By H.J. Moe

Before there was a CORE Study Guide, before there was a NEU Study Guide, there was Moe.  In it's first incarnation it was "Radiation Safety Technician Training Manual, ANL-7291", known to all as the "Moe Handbook".  It was updated in June of 1992 due to changes in radiation protection standards and measurement technology since its original publication in May,1972 and renamed "Operational Health Physics Training, ANL-88-26".  However, if you look in the references section of practically every HP book, you'll find it listed.  In my opinion, it is one of the BEST reference materials for HP Technicians.  It Covers Reactor Operations, Particle Accelerators, and X-Ray Devices as well as the basics.  It's a "Must Read".

The entire Manual is about 50 MB in PDF format (929 pages), so I have broken it into 28 smaller sections to make downloading it easier.
