Research involving Radioactive Materials



Research involving radioactive materials must adhere to Laurierís Radiation Safety Program and the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) Nuclear Safety and Control Act.

A researcher must obtain an internal permit from the Radiation Safety Committee (RSC) before acquisition of isotopes. When a researcher indicates the use of radioactive materials in a grant application, the Office of Research Services will contact the Radiation Safety Officer to determine whether the work area, experimental procedures and worker training have been approved and given an internal permit by the RSC.

Please contact Sarah Lamb, Biological/Chemical/Radiation Safety Officer (slamb@wlu.ca or x3108) for assistance with the permit application processes.
