X-Ray Safety

It is essential that faculty, staff, and students have enough information available to aid them in the safe conduct of their daily work activities relating to lasers and laser-producing devices. In view of this, the objective of The University of North Texas Health Science Center X-ray Safety program is to assist all levels of management in fulfilling the university’s commitment to ensure a safe working environment from X-ray hazards.  Also, the X-ray safety program will assist both personnel and management in complying with the objectives of the Texas Department of State Health Services, Radiation Control regulations (25 TAC §289.301), and the UNTHSC Health and Safety Policies.
