Dose to the lens of the eye is measured at 300 mg/cm^2, so if there is
shielding, you may be able to account for its effect on lens of the eye
dose, expecially if you have a study to back up your reasoning.  I don't
know if Lens dose is limiting in your situation but if so, you may be able
to extend your times by accounting for shielding.

Subject: [ RadSafe ] SCBA and beta dose connection?

I have a document in front of me that states, " IF SCBAs are used, the beta
dose rates may be neglected."  The context is in a post -accident mission
dose determination where the effect of SCBAs is discussed. I'll admit my
ignorance on this one.  Does anybody know where this came from or what would
support it?

thx in advance  - -jmr
