EHS is responsible for managing and monitoring the radiation safety and laser safety program efforts at the University of
Kansas - Lawrence Campus. Our goal is to prevent and/or minimize occupational and environmental exposure from hazardous materials
usage and hazardous activities being conducted in the laboratory environment.
EHS Radiation & Laser Safety Service is committed to keeping occupational doses and public doses to radiation As Low As Reasonably
Achievable (ALARA). ALARA is the professional practice-of-excellence standard for achieving safety and regulatory objectives through the
proper evaluation of potential exposure and by making every reasonable effort to reduce potential exposure. This comprehensive Radiation
Protection and Laser Safety Program promotes the safety and health of employees, students, and the public by facilitating educational,
research, and campus activities that use radiation and laser sources and devices.
