Radiation Safety

EHS is responsible for implementing the University’s radiation safety program as defined by the Radiation Safety Committee, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission Broad Scope license, and applicable state and federal regulations. All personnel approved for use of radioactive materials are expected to utilize safe work practices, and conduct and complete all required activities to maintain compliance with these regulations.

The EHS radiation safety staff manages the inventory of all radioactive materials on campus, performs surveys and inspections, and regularly monitors employees to ensure worker safety.
