Radiation Dosimetry

Radiation Dosimetry

As part of Harvard’s effort to maintain a safe environment, EH&S coordinates the radiation dosimetry worn by all radioactive material users and others occupying radioactive material use areas. These dosimeters track and monitor external radiation exposures and ensure that we are following the principle of ALARA; keeping exposures as low as reasonably achievable. It is important to remember that dosimetry only measures external radiation exposure and offers no protection from radiation.

The closer the cell phone antenna tower, the less the radiofrequency (RF) exposure when you use your cell phone? For further info on cell phone towers and RF visit Cellphone Towers and RF Radiation Safety.
