The Radiation Safety Program is responsible for assisting the Auburn University community in the safe use of ionizing radiation including radioactive materials (RAM) and x-rays. The program is designed to protect principal investigators, researchers, students, the general public, and environment from exposure, and ensure the safe receipt, handling, use and storage of RAM. Our staff strive to reduce even the smallest risk by providing training and education of Auburn University personnel, students, and interested members of the public. The mission of this program is to facilitate safe conditions for utilizing radiation, maintain radiation exposures As Low As Reasonably Achievable (ALARA), and to ensure operations are in compliance with applicable city, state, and federal regulations.
