Radiation Safety Program - Audits and Inspections

The University of Idaho Radiation Safety Program is a comprehensive program designed to ensure the safety and well-being of the university community and a healthy and safe environment. All matters regarding the program are managed through the Radiation Safety Officer (RSO) in EHS, including training on the proper handling of radioactive materials (RAM), surveys and inspections, dosimetry monitoring, purchasing of RAM and waste disposal. The RSO also serves as the university's liaison with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), and works closely with the university's Radiation Safety Committee.

The RSO prepares an annual audit of the university's radiation safety program activities as required by the NRC. Inspections of all university facilities where radioactive materials are used are conducted semiannually by the RSO; inspection information is then provided to the Radiation Safety Committee to monitor the use of RAM.

For additional information, please see the Radiation Safety Manual or contact EHS at 208-885-6524.
