1.6 Security of Radioactive Material

Securing of radioactive material against unauthorized access or removal is required by regulations.  To ensure adherence to this requirement, EHS provides the following guidance:

  • Radioactive materials and waste are considered secure if they are locked in a cabinet, refrigerator, etc., when unattended.
  • Laboratories containing radioactive material or waste that are not otherwise secured as described above are required to have the lab door secured from unauthorized entry when left unattended.
