Radiation

The Radiation Safety Program is responsible for ensuring that all users of ionizing radiation and radiation producing machines are in compliance with existing regulatory requirements. All radioactive materials at Pomona College are licensed by the State of California. This license grants authority to the Pomona College Radiation Safety Committee to authorize the use of radioactive materials at any of its facilities. Radiation producing machines are registered by the California Radiologic Health Branch and must also be authorized by the Pomona College Radiation Safety Committee. If you have any questions, please contact Environmental Health & Safety Officer, Kyle Soliz.

Biosafety

Biosafety is the discipline that addresses the safe handling and containment of biological materials to protect workers, the public, agriculture, and the environment from exposure to infectious agents or biohazardous materials that may cause disease or other detrimental effects in humans, plants, or animals. If you have any questions, please contact Environmental Health & Safety Officer, Kyle Soliz.
