Title: Radiation Safety in Research


1
Radiation Safety in Research
  • UMMC Research Training Seminar Series

2
Application
  • Working with radioactive materials requires the
    submission of an application for approval from
    the Radiation Safety Committee
  • Applications are available on the Environmental
    Health and Safety web page
  • http//ehs.umc.edu/docs/Radiation20Safety20in20

Application (continued)
  • Temporary approval will be given by RSO, based on
    training and experience, until next RSC meeting
  • The Radiation Safety Committee meets quarterly to
    approve all applications for new users, requests
    for new isotopes and grant approval requests
  • Signed approval letter will follow RSC meeting

Approval Letter
  • The final approval letter will have the following
    information
  • This is to confirm that the UMMC Radiation Safety
    Committee approved your request Request_ to
    use isotopes at the University of MS Medical
    Center during a meeting held RSC_Date. The
    grant proposal is entitled "Title". This
    approval is contingent upon the conditions listed
    at the conclusion of this letter.

Grant Approvals
  • Grant applications including the use of
    radioactive materials are processed through the
    Office of Research
  • Complete the grant application
  • Complete the radiation memo on Office of Research
    web page

Training for Laboratory Personnel
  • All personnel working with radioactive materials
    must complete safety training
  • Information for Training form collected from
    department to verify personnel who are working
    with radioactive materials
  • Videos in the library titled Lab Safety Series
  • Form collected from librarian to be collected and
    sent to Radiation Safety Office
  • Dosimetry ordered if necessary

15
Laboratory Commission
  • After the approval process to use radioactive
    materials has been completed the laboratory must
    be prepared
  • Signs
  • Storage facilities
  • Work stations (liner, shields, hoods, etc.)
  • Waste collection
  • PPE

16
Ordering of Radioactive Materials
  • ALL hazardous materials must be ordered on a
    requisition
  • SPPO ORDERS ARE NOT PERMITTED
  • Object code 288 must be used for ordering
    radioactive materials, regardless of how low the
    activity is
  • Packages must be surveyed and checked in by
    Radiation Safety
  • If you get package that has not been checked by
    us please call and we will come to your lab

17
Radioactive Materials Use in Animals
  • Approval required from IACUC
  • Identify location of use (laboratory or Animal
    Facilities)
  • Determine types of waste
  • Bedding
  • Tissue
  • Carcass
  • Animal activity less than 0.05 µCi per gram is
    not considered radioactive waste
