Radiation Safety Committees (RSC)



The responsibility for ensuring the safe operation of a radiation safety program belongs to the Radiation Safety Committees (RSC). At UCLA, the RSC and the four subcommittees – the Academic Radiation Safety Committee (ARSC), the Clinical Operations Radiation Committee (CORSC), the Medical Radiation Safety Committee (MRSC), and the Radioactive Drug Research Committee (RDRC) – are responsible for the policies and procedures pertaining to the use of radiation.

A new Radiation Hazard Awareness Training is online as part of a Health Systems initiative to ensure our education about radiation hazards in the workplace. This brief training was developed for all staff working in the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital, Santa Monica UCLA Medical Center, as well as the Faculty Practice Group, to alleviate concerns about working around radiation.

Additional modules are available on the website if you work with/around Radiation Producing Equipment, or work with/around Radioactive Materials at the Health System. If your work functions require radiation monitoring, you will be led to fill out a form at the end of the training modules that signify the need for dosimetry.


If you have any questions concerning the Radiation Hazard Awareness Training, please contact Elizabeth Genta.
