Radiation & Laser Safety

Before researchers conduct experiments involving sources of radiation (radioactive isotopes, Mössbaur, irradiators) or lasers (class 3B and 4, laser microscopes), they must undergo training. In addition, the below resources guide researchers on how to approach laser and radiation safety requirements.
