As part of the ongoing efforts to ensure safety at the University of Utah, the offices of Occupational and Environmental Health and Safety (OEHS) and Radiation Safety (RSO) will integrate into one departmental unit, effective May 1, 2019.
Uranyl acetate and uranyl nitrate are relatively common laboratory chemicals that contain uranium and are therefore naturally radioactive. Contrary to most radioactive materials, these compounds can be legally purchased by anyone.
University of Utah has changed radiation dosimetry providers; dosimetry previously provided by Landauer is now provided by Mirion. If you are a member of a research team that has historically received radiation dosimetry and have either not received the Mirion dosimeters, or have Landauer dosimeters that have not been returned, please contact Radiation Safety at 801-581-6141 for guidance.
