Welcome to Arkansas State University!

Radiation and Laser Safety

The objectives of the Arkansas State University Radiation and Laser Safety Program are to assist in fulfilling the University's commitment to provide a safe and healthy environment for employment and learning and to establish and promote safe practices at all times. Protection of employees, students, the public, and university property and operations are paramount and every attempt will be made to ensure that our facilities are as free as possible from recognized radiation hazards.

The Arkansas Department of Health has issued a Specific Broad Scope License to Arkansas State University. This license authorizes and tightly regulates the responsible use of radionuclides on our campus.

Below is the current Arkansas State University Radiation Safety Manual and Laser Safety Manual. Questions  should be directed to the EHS director at mdooley@astate.edu.
