SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
: The radioactive material used in this instrument is tritiumgas (H
3
) sealed or in glass tubes. These sources illuminate the instrumentation for nightoperations. Tampering with or removal of the sources in the field is prohibited by Federallaw. In the event there is no illumination, notify the local RSO or ACALA RSO. If skincontact is made with any area contaminated with tritium, wash immediately with soap andwater.The beta radiation emitted by tritium is a hazard only if the vial or source is broken.Tritium can be taken into the body by inhalation, ingestion, or skin absorption/injection. Ifthe vial is broken, the tritium gas will dissipate into the surrounding air. If released in aconfined space such as a storage locker, container, unventilated room, or military vehicle,tritium is absorbed by lungs from air or by skin contact with contaminated surfaces.However, the body naturally eliminates absorbed tritium.
C. IDENTIFICATION:
Instruments containing radioactive self-luminous vials are identified bymeans of radioactive warning labels (see above). These labels should not be defaced orremoved and should be replaced immediately when necessary. Refer to the local RSO or theACALA RSO for instructions on handling, storage, or disposal.
