The X-Ray Protection Program at UNH oversees the safe use of X-Ray devices on campus. It provides guidance for the compliance with the NH Rules for the Control of Radiation regulated by the Radiological Health Section of the State of NH Health and Human Services.

Areas in which radiation-producing machines are used or stored must have proper postings. State regulations require that a copy of the machine registration as well as a current "Notice to Employees" be visibly posted.

All X-ray and radiation-producing machine users are required to complete a training course upon assignment to labs containing X-ray devices, and annually thereafter as a refresher. This training is available on-line. Please contact Michele Arista to obtain the link for this training.
X-Ray surveys are conducted biannually by the Radiation Safety Officer, or qualified designee. Click the link below to view the X-Ray Inspection Checklist.
