 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, Laboratory policies and procedures

 Who should receive training?

Any new personnel working directly with radioactive material should receive Radiation Safety Training. Students, post-docs, lab technicians, etc. must have documented training in radiation safety.
