Information for laboratory workers using radioactive material:
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
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.
You will need to e-mail Radiation Safety for training. You will need to borrow a training video and take a short quiz. You may then schedule a personalized in lab training session when you return the video and quiz to radiation safety.
