Note: A complete Radiation Worker Registration form requires two signatures: one for the applicant and one for the person that will be supervising the applicant's radioactive material use. Also, the area of the form titled "Experience" must have some form of positive reporting: if the applicant has never worn a radiation badge (dosimeter) before please write NONE or NO. If they have been badged prior to coming to Temple, please indicate the name, location and dates of employment. Do not leave this section blank. Please do not submit the form until all the above information has been provided. Thank you.
- Dry Activated Radioactive Waste
- EHRS manages all radioactive waste disposal at Temple University and Temple University Health System. Dry activated radioactive waste is any solid, dry laboratory materials, equipment, or supplies that have been contaminated with radioactive material.
- Pregnant Worker Counseling
- The objective of the Pregnant Worker counseling program is to assist women who are childbearing age, pregnant, or nursing, understand the risks and minimize exposure to these hazards in the workplace through education and counseling.
Authorization to Use Radioactive Materials Forms
- New Authorization for Possession and Use of Radioactive Materials in Research
- Change Possession Limit Form

Research Use of Radioactive Material
Diagnostic Imaging for X-ray Machines
- Radiation exposure (individual radiation exposure as well as collective dose equivalent) must be kept as low as reasonably achievable. This so called "ALARA" (As Low As Reasonably Achieveable) principle has been introduced into regulations of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, and has been adopted by Temple University. This policy provides specific guidance and data on Temple University's approach to the implementation of the ALARA principle.
For me information about Temple's ALARA policy, please see section 4.6 of the EHRS handbook
