Radiation Safety Program


MU possesses a broad scope license issued by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) to the Curators. This license allows MU to receive, possess, use, and transfer radioactive materials (RAM). X-ray machines and accelerators are currently regulated by the State of Missouri.

Campus activities are managed through the designation of Permitted Individuals with either a RAM or X-Ray permit. The Radiation Safety Staff (RSS) monitors the use of RAM and x-rays to ensure they are being handled and stored safely.

The RSS also provides guidance on working safely with non-ionizing radiation sources, such as lasers.

The RSS works closely with the Radiation Safety Committee to develop policies and procedures for regulatory compliance.
