Radiation and Laser Safety

The Radiation Safety Section is responsible for complying with regulations set forth by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission as well as the Indiana State Department of Health for the safe use of radioactive materials on campus. We accomplish this by providing several types of training, radioactive waste pickups, calibration services, personnel dosimetry to monitor radiation exposure, as well as consulting support for all of your safety concerns.

We hope that these pages will help you in all of your radiation safety needs. If you need further help, please contact the The Radiation Safety Officer.
