Before work commences researchers and students must first discuss the methods and procedures for handling and disposal with their supervisor and the Faculty Radiation Safety Officer.
Work with Radioisotopes is only permitted in labs that are registered with the Environment Protection Authority (EPA). Currently the following labs are registered for radiation work: N257 and S211.
The University requires all persons working with radioisotopes to attend a radiation safety training course. The training course is provided free of charge to staff and students. Details can be found under WHS Training.
