All x-ray producing equipment will be operated only by trained faculty, staff, or students. No x-ray producing equipment will be left operating unattended without prior approval from the RSO. If approved to do so by the RSO, the laboratory entrance/exit doors must be locked while the machine is operating.

All x-ray producing equipment will be secured when not in use in such a manner that it cannot be used by untrained, unauthorized workers or members of the public, either knowingly or unknowingly. This must be done by either removing keys necessary to operate the equipment or locking the room in which the equipment is located.

All x-ray use laboratories and x-ray equipment must be labeled with appropriate warning signs to alert others as to the possible dangers associated with use of the device.

For questions or concerns about security please call EH&S at (515) 294-5359.
