|Policy Name: Radiation Safety|
|Policy Number: 701.28|
|Effective Date: August, 1 2008|
The objective of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock (UALR) Radiation Safety Program is to assist all levels of management in fulfilling the UALR commitment to furnish a place of employment and learning which is as free as possible from recognized radiation hazards that cause or are likely to cause harm or death to personnel and/or the surrounding community. It is vital that faculty, staff, and students have sufficient information available to aid them in the safe conduct of their day-to-day work activities while working with radioactive materials and/or devices.
The Arkansas Department of Health issues an academic institution license to UALR, which authorizes the use of radionuclides. An essential component of that license is the UALR Radiation Safety Manual.
The purpose of the UALR Radiation Safety Manual is to assist both personnel and management in complying with the objectives of the Arkansas Department of Health, Bureau of Radiation Control regulations, and the UALR Radiation Safety Office and Committee. This manual is not intended to be an exhaustive or fully comprehensive reference, but rather a guide for authorized users or other technically qualified individuals. Further information or advice concerning hazards associated with radioactive materials or ionizing producing equipment should be obtained through consultation with the Radiation Safety Office (FM 217, phone: 501-371-7607).
