New Dosimeter Request (X-Ray)

All workers using radiation-producing machines must have the appropriate radiation safety training before starting work. For information about training please go to the EHS Training Courses Pages.

Personal dosimeters are worn only while working at Michigan State University and shall not be taken off campus or worn at other institutions. If you are assigned a dosimeter, wear only your own and do not loan, borrow or share dosimeters with other workers. Dosimeters are for monitoring any occupational dose received at MSU and do not provide any shielding or protection from radiation exposure.
