Radiological Safety

Utah State University is licensed to use radioactive materials and devices by Utah’s Division of Waste Management and Radiation Control. Under this license, authority to review and approve campus uses of regulated radiological materials and devices is delegated to the Radiation Safety Committee (RSC).

The license also establishes a Radiation Safety Officer (RSO) for implementation of a Radiation Safety Program, as well as to ensure that work related exposures are As Low As Reasonably Achievable (ALARA).

The use of radioisotopes is tightly controlled, and all persons using them must be registered and properly trained.
This license is available for review, upon request, at Environmental Health and Safety offices during normal business hours.
