Radiation Safety Committee

The Radiation Safety Committee (RSC) is the governing body for all aspects of radiation protection within the university. This mandate includes all affiliated research, instructional and service units using ionizing and non-ionizing radiation sources or devices (collectively referred to as “radiation sources”) in facilities owned or controlled by the university. 

The RSC ensures that all possession, use and disposition of radiation sources by the university personnel complies with pertinent federal and state regulations and with specific conditions of licenses to the university, and that all concomitant radiation exposures are maintained as low as reasonably achievable (ALARA).
