The Beam Loss Monitor (BLM) system is primarily used for machine protection and is especially important in the case of high energy density of accelerated beam, when such a beam could cause serious damages due to uncontrolled loss. PolFEL linear accelerator is designed with the beam parameters, which made BLM an essential system for machine protection. The design of BLM system for PolFEL is composed of several scintillation probes placed along and around the accelerator. The paper reports on design and first tests of prototype detector, which is planned to be used for PolFEL project. The prototype was tested in NCBJ and SOLARIS, using radioactive calibration samples and linear electron accelerator as a sources. We also present results of numerical investigation of radiation generated due to interaction of fast electrons with accelerator components.
