Protecting People & the Environment

Radiation Safety Office

Welcome to the Radiation Safety Office. Our staff is responsible for ensuring the safety of individuals using ionizing radiation (radioactive materials and radiation-producing machines) at the UNM campus and in other locations where these items may be used by University faculty and staff.

Our objective is the protection of people and the environment from unnecessary exposure to radiation. We accomplish this by providing a radiation protection program to the University community which is in compliance with both Federal and State Radiation Protection Regulations.
