Radiation Safety

The Safety and Risk Management Radiation Safety Section has responsibility for the safe use of radioactive material and radiation-producing devices.  The guiding principle of maintaining exposures to ionizing or non-ionizing radiation as low as reasonably achievable (ALARA) is consistent with VCU’s policies to foster a safe working environment known as a positive Safety Culture.

The Radiation Safety Section provides consultation, remote or on-site assistance, audits and guidance for the secure and safe use of radioactive materials, radiation producing devices, and lasers with administrative controls and oversight in each area where radiation devices or radioactive materials or lasers are used.   The goal of the Radiation Safety Program is to identify the needs and respond to requests for assistance within the University, VCU Health, and individuals in order to maintain safety and regulatory compliance.
