    Individuals who directly handle radioactive material or radiation-producing machines are referred to as occupational radiation workers and are required to complete radiation safety training. EH&S provides initial radiation safety training courses that introduce basic radiation safety principles, techniques, and requirements along with supplemental documents containing relevant safety and compliance information. Users of radioactive materials will be required to take the online course, then attend a classroom session. Only those who successfully complete both parts will be permitted to work with radioactive material. Users of radiation-producing machines will be required to take the online course,. Only those who successfully pass the course will be permitted to work with radiation-producing machines.

    Radiation safety for users of radioactive materials

    This learning track is designed to educate personnel on proper work procedures and safety guidelines for work with radioisotopes in a research or clinical environment. Participants first pass an online course, then attend a classroom session presented by EH&S Radiation Safety staff. Both must be taken by first-time radiation workers. At a minimum, refresher training is required annually and as needed.

    For initial training, register at Worksafe

    1. Complete the online course, Radiation Safety for Users of Radioactive Materials - Online. Course code: RAD-RAM1-OL.
    2. Attend the classroom training session, Radiation Safety for Materials Users – In-Class. Course code: RAD-RAM2.

    For annual refresher training, please complete one of the refresher training modules on Worksafe. Course codes: RAD-DOS-OR, RAD-INS-OR, RAD-MC-OR, RAD-SS-OR, RAD-WM-OR.
