Exposure History Request
Radioactive material and other sources of ionizing radiation are used for teaching and research at MSU. The Radiation Safety Program is responsible for promoting the safe use of ionizing radiation to prevent unnecessary exposure to MSU faculty, staff, students, the general public, and the environment.
Working with or around radioactive materials is a unique hazard and requires special training. Learn more about Radiation Safety Enrollment, Good Lab Practices, and Spills and Emergencies by clicking below.
