The Health Physics (HP) group develops and administers the institutional radiation safety, laser safety, and electromagnetic safety programs. The goal of the radiation safety program is to ensure that radiation dose from ionizing radiation to workers, members of the public, and the environment are as low as reasonably achievable (ALARA) below the limits established by regulatory agencies. The goal of the laser safety program and electromagnetic safety program are to ensure the safe-use of these non-ionizing radiation producing devices. These safety programs also ensure that individual users conduct their work in accordance with university, state, and federal requirements.
