Working with radiation sources at the University of Utah requires appropriate authorization, training, and oversight. All work with radiation sources must be performed under a radiation work permit which is under the jurisdiction of a Responsible Users (RU).
Having a radiation work permit allows the acquisition and use of radioactive material and radiation-producing equipment in a manner that is safe and compliant. Click on “Maintain” for information on amending radiation work permits.
A radiation work permit often requires amending: approved radiation workers, types and/or amounts of material, locations, processes, etc. Click on “Change” for information helpful to sustaining radiation-related research.
Termination of radiation-related work must be done so in a way that radiation hazards from the permit are removed and all regulatory requirements are met. Click on “End” for information related to proper permit termination.
