    Individuals who directly handle radioactive material or radiation-producing machines are referred to as occupational radiation workers and are required to complete radiation safety training. EH&S provides initial radiation safety training courses that introduce basic radiation safety principles, techniques, and requirements along with supplemental documents containing relevant safety and compliance information. At the conclusion of the training session, an examination is administered to document the success of the training. Only those who successfully pass the examination will be permitted to work with radioactive material or radiation-producing machines.
