Radiation Safety

NOTE: The Radiation Safety Manual is currently undergoing major revisions. Please contact EH&S if you have any questions about proper procedures in the meantime.

Sources of ionizing radiation, such as radioactive materials and x-ray machines, can pose a considerable health risk if not properly controlled. 

Radiation Safety Committee has been developed which reviews and approves all research using radioisotopes and radiation-producing equipment at TWU.

Dr. Nathaniel Mills (ext. 81-2391 or email nmills@twu.edu) serves as the University Radiation Safety Officer (RSO).

Individuals using radioactive materials, or operating radiation producing equipment, must register with the RSO and complete mandatory training.
