The purpose of the Radiation Safety Program is to assure the safe use of ionizing radiation through training, consultation, and surveillance consistent with government regulations. Cal Poly posesses a specific license of braod scope issued by the State of California. The manual below covers the radiation safety program for all radioisotope use on campus. All principal investigators and radioisotope users are required to comply with all of its provisions, as well as the conditions of the Radiation Use Authorization (RUA).
