Radiation Safety Program Overview

The University of Idaho recognizes the importance of radioactive materials in its mission as a teaching and research institution. The purpose of a radiation safety program is to allow individuals to use radioactive materials properly and safely.

The radiation safety program provides information and training on the theory, hazards, biological effects, protective measures, monitoring and disposal of radioactive materials; establishes policies by which radioactive materials may be safely used; ensures compliance with local, state and federal regulations; and provides emergency response assistance.

The Radiation Safety Manual is designed to ensure compliance with Nuclear Regulatory Commission regulations and Idaho Radiation Control regulations concerning radiation-producing equipment. The Code of Federal Regulations, Title 10, is considered an integral part of the Radiation Safety Manual and should be consulted whenever additional information is needed. These regulations are available at the Environmental Health and Safety Office.

Under the university's radioactive materials license and registration of radiation-producing equipment, the authority for administration of a comprehensive radiation safety program is delegated to the Radiation Safety Committee.
