Radiological Safety

How to safely use radioactive material

The focus of the campus Radiation Safety Program is to assure that radioactive material is used safely.

We provide inter-and intramural technical education programs in the areas of radiation safety, regulatory compliance, laboratory, medical, and accelerator health physics, radiological waste management, radiation biology, and risk assessment.

Radioactive Materials

The purpose of the University's Health Physics Program is to assure the safe use of ionizing radiation through training, consultation, and surveillance consistent with University, State, and Federal regulations. The UC Davis Radiation Safety Manual describes the requirements for the use of ionizing radiation and the University's Health Physics Program. This guide is prepared for Principal Investigators as an aid in complying with the State of California, Broad Scope License for use of radioactive materials.
