Radiation Safety

Radiation Safety Collage


An organization's radiation safety program provides safety guidance and procedures for the use, maintenance, handling, storage, and disposal of controlled radioactive items and other radioactive materials. The goal of any radiation safety program is to support leadership in providing a safe and healthful workplace for its personnel by keeping personnel exposures to radiation, contamination of property, and uncontrolled releases of radioactive materials as low as reasonably achievable. Information in this page will provides safety managers and the radiation safety officers with resources to assist in managing your radiation safety program. As always, the Tactical Safety Network welcomes your comments and feedback. Please contact the Tactical Safety Network via e-mail with your questions and comments regarding radiation safety.
