Radiation Safety Training

Information for laboratory workers using radioactive material:

What is the goal of Radiation Safety Training?
The radiation safety training that we provide teaches the basics of working with radioisotopes in research laboratories, including the following topics: basics of radioactivity, health effects of ionizing radiation, radiation protection techniques, Licensing and regulations, and laboratory policies and procedures.

Who should receive training?
Any personnel planning on working directly with radioactive material must receive Radiation Safety Training prior to handling material. Students, post-docs, lab technicians, etc. must have documented training in radiation safety before working with radiation.

How can I sign up?
You will need to email Radiation Safety for training. You will need to borrow a training video and take a short quiz. You must then schedule a personalized in lab training session when you return the video and quiz to radiation safety.
