Radiation & Laser Safety


EHS is responsible for administering and monitoring the radiation safety and laser safety program efforts at the University of Kansas - Lawrence Campus.

Our goal is to prevent and/or minimize occupational and environmental exposure from radiation & laser usage/activities across campus.

EHS Radiation & Laser Safety Service is committed to keeping occupational doses and public doses to radiation As Low As Reasonably Achievable (ALARA). ALARA is the professional practice-of-excellence standard for achieving safety and regulatory objectives through the proper evaluation of potential exposure and by making every reasonable effort to reduce potential exposure. This comprehensive Radiation Protection and Laser Safety Program promotes the safety and health of employees, students, and the public by facilitating educational, research, and campus activities that use radiation and laser sources and devices.
