X-Ray Safety at Memorial

 

Use of X-ray Emitting Devices (XED) in Canada is regulated under the Radiation Emitting Devices Act and Regulations. In addition, all use of Analytical XED must comply with Health Canada Safety Code 32: Safety Requirements And Guidance For Analytical X-ray Equipment.

Within Newfoundland and Labrador XED use is also regulated under the Radiation Health and Safety Act and Regulations. These regulations call for annual registration of all XED and inspection of facilities where XED are used. MUN's X-ray Safety Program (XSP) is administered by the Radiation Safety Officer within the office of Environmental Health & Safety.

For information on radiation safety, please call the University Radiation Safety Officer at 864-8250 or e-mail at rso@mun.ca
