Faculty who need to procure radiation sources for research and/or teaching
purposes must be formally approved by the Radiation Safety Committee (RSC). Approval will be granted
if the applicant has had previous on-the-job experience handling
radionuclides or radiation producing devices of a similar nature and quantity. Applicants who are
deficient in experience must work under an authorized investigator's
approval for at least 6 months.
Application forms are available at the RSO in room 004 of the Rowell Building. Or you may download them from our website by clicking here.
Authorized To Handle Radiation
All persons who handle radiation for research or teaching purposes must
meet the requirements set by the RSC. The requirements also apply to
temporary employees such as work-study students and visiting scientists.
