Radiation Safety Office


The Radiation Safety Office receives, inspects, and surveys all incoming radioactive materials. Pullman campus authorized users are not to receive radioactive materials directly from vendors. If radioactive materials are delivered directly to the authorized user, notify the RSO immediately to ensure that proper receiving surveys are performed and documented.

After a thorough inspection of the package a member of the Radiation Safety Office delivers it to the user's laboratory. If no one is available in the laboratory to receive the order, Radiation Safety personnel attempt delivery through the department office. If refused, the package is returned to the Radiation Safety Office.

Note: Radioactive materials must be received on the Pullman campus during University working hours only. Deliveries at any other times, such as holidays and weekends, are not allowed. If a radioactive package is delivered directly by a carrier to your lab, perform and document results of package inspection, monitoring, and wipe test of exterior surface.
