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.
The Office of the Vice President for Research is committed to the safety and security of all of our University of Utah faculty, administration, staff, post-docs, students, and affiliated community. Below are various policy and resource links for dedicated safety and security support specialists across our campus and affiliate community. You are encouraged to contact any of these resources with reports, questions, comments, or concerns, at any time.
