Radiation Safety Committee

Tuskegee University is licensed by the State of Alabama to possess and utilize radioactive materials and devices that produce ionizing radiation.  Federal and state laws require that standards, policies and procedures that are set forth in Rules of Radiation Control of the Alabama State Board of Health, Chapter 420-3-26, are enforced by persons (Institutions) holding such licenses.  The primary purpose of the Radiation Safety Committee (RSC) is to ensure that radioisotopes and devices producing ionizing radiation are used safely on campus and that they present no danger to either the campus community or to persons living in communities around the campus.
