The Radiation and Laser Safety Program addresses safety issues with radioactive material use, radiation-producing machines, and high-powered lasers. The program is designed to serve as a resource to the UTSA research and teaching community and also to assist with regulatory compliance. The program includes policies, procedures, information and safety guides, training, as well as lab evaluations and safety reviews of research protocols and assistance with selection of protective equipment.
The acquisition and use of radioactive material, radiation-producing machines, or high-powered lasers requires advance review and approval by the Radiation Safety Officer and the UTSA Radiation & Laser Safety Committee. For more information, contact the Radiation & Laser Safety Officer or the Radiation & Laser Safety Coordinator.
