Radiation Safety Training Requirements

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL AN INDIVIDUAL BE ALLOWED TO WORK WITH RADIOACTIVE MATERIALS PRIOR TO RECEIVING THE APPROPRIATE RADIATION SAFETY TRAINING

The United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s regulations mandate radiation safety training for all personnel working with radioactive materials. UConn Health is committed to providing a safe research and work environment to all our faculty and staff. The Office of Radiation Safety provides training lectures to meet this requirement.

It is the Principal Investigator’s responsibility to insure that:

  • New personnel who will be working with radioactive materials, using the
    Cs-137 Gammacell Irradiator or working in areas where radioactive materials are used and/or stored attend the four hour Initial training lecture.
  • Personnel who have received training over a year ago attend a Refresher lecture.

Other personnel wishing to review and update their radiation safety training are invited to attend.
