Radiation Safety Guide

Radiation Protection Services (RPS) has the responsibility to implement the radiation safety program at Stony Brook University. The complete rules and regulations for the safe use of radioactive materials can be found in the University Radiation Protection Committee (URPC) Policies and Procedures booklet, which is available in each authorized radioactive materials laboratory. This booklet is provided to aid you in recognizing your responsibility for radiation safety. While it gives an overview of basic radiation safety procedures, it is the responsibility of each radiation worker to be thoroughly familiar with all applicable sections of the Radioactive Materials Safety Manual.

Ordering and Receiving Radioactive Materials

All radioisotope orders must be approved by RPS and delivered to the RPS office. Quantities ordered may not cause the laboratory inventory to exceed authorized limits. All withdrawals of radioisotopes from original containers must be logged on the Inventory/Disposal sheets provided by RPS. When containers are empty they are discarded to waste and the Inventory/Disposal Record sheet returned to the RPS office.
