Radiation Safety

Analytical X-Ray Devices


Each Principal Investigator whose research involves the use of an analytical x-ray device shall: 

  • Register each device with the Radiation Safety Officer by completing and submitting Form XS-1.
  • Restrict access to the device to those personnel who have completed training requirements as documented in Form XS-2
  • Ensure that the device is operated safely and in accordance with all university requirements as detailed in the Analytical X-ray Safety Guide
  • Develop, for each x-ray device, a written standard operating procedure that incorporates “specific” safety considerations and provide training to each user on these procedures.
