The EH&S Radiation Safety Program provides a radiation protection program that is in accordance with the rules, regulations, licenses and permits issued by the New York State Department of Health, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission for the safe use of radioactive materials and radiation producing equipment at the University at Buffalo.
All radiation generating equipment must be registered with EH&S and appropriate X-ray training provided to workers.
TRANSPORTING RADIOACTIVE MATERIALS:
Federal regulations require that only authorized hazardous material (hazmat) workers are allowed to transport radioactive material using motorized vehicles. Contact EH&S Radiation Safety at 829-3281 to arrange for shipping radioactive material anytime the material is not hand carried such as between campuses or to other licensees.
