The WSU RPPM is currently undergoing revision to include new procedures based on the adoption of our new database system. The new RPPM will be a user friendly, question based document that will cover all aspects of radiation use at WSU.
WSU Radiation Protection Manual
Introduction and Statement of Purpose
All activities that may result in potential radiation exposure to students, faculty, and staff must be reviewed and approved by the Radiation Safety Committee.
It is a policy at WSU that every effort shall be made to maintain occupational radiation exposure as low as is reasonably achievable (ALARA). “Radiation” means ionizing radiation, i.e., gamma rays and x-rays, alpha and beta particles, high speed electrons, and other nuclear particles.
