To ensure radiation safety for personnel working in the facility, the Radiation and Operation Safety Division has installed a real-time radiation monitoring system in the working area to monitor gamma rays and neutrons, for which the annual dosage limit is designed to be less than 1 mSv/year. Considering 2000 working hours for users and staff members, we have derived a control dose rate limit 2 µSv/4h for interlock protection. If the accumulated radiation dose monitored with the system exceeds
