Radiation Safety & Compliance

The Safety and Risk Management Office manages the Radiation Safety Program to ensure compliance with the use of radioactive materials, ionizing radiation generating devices, and Class 3B and 4 lasers at WCU. 

We aim to:

  • provide radiological safety information to ensure a safe workplace and keep worker and public exposure As Low As Reasonably Achievable (ALARA)
  • comply with federal and state regulations pertaining to the use of radioactive materials and equipment
  • maintain laser exposures below the Maximum Permissible Exposure (MPE) limit
