Safe Radiation Work Practices

Safe Radiation Work Practices

When working with radioactive material, you should take steps to minimize your exposure and also ensure the safety of all who enter your work area. EH&S provides guidance on preparing your work area, performing a contamination survey, shielding, and using personal protective equipment (PPE). We also make available specific guides for common radionuclides.
