The Radio-Frequency (RF) Safety Program is managed by the Radiation Safety Office; a subset of the Office of Environmental and Emergency Management (EEM). We are here to ensure that RF use on campus be conducted in a safe manner while regulatory compliance is followed. This section of the website regarding RF sources, covers topics to assist any current, or future, users setting up or maintaining a RF lab installation on campus.
RF source inventory: Please communicate the following information (if available) to the radiation safety office
Procedures: If necessary, procedures shall be created for the RF source's safe operation. Please provide a copy to the radiation safety office
Hazard analysis: Prior to RF source operation, radiation safety will conduct a hazard analysis of the RF emitter (during operation) with appropriate detectors. Please contact the radiation safety office to arrange a time to visit the space.
- Responsible persons contact (name, email, and phone)
- Emitter location (building, room, location in room) with maps if available
