Radiation Safety

The Radiation Safety Program was developed by Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University, Office of Environmental Health and Safety in support of its primary objective to provide and maintain a safe campus environment for work and study. This area ensures compliance to the University’s Radiation Safety License issued by The Florida Department of Health (DOH).
The primary goals of the program are to ensure the radiological safety of all university personnel and the public; to guarantee that radiation sources are procured and used in accordance with federal and State regulations; to ensure that radiation exposures are “As Low As Reasonably Achievable” (ALARA); and to ensure that all radioactive waste generated is collected and disposed in a manner consistent with Florida Administrative Code (FAC) 64E-5 and Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 10.
