Federal radiation reporting rules available for employees
The University expects that everyone who works with radioactive materials and witnesses unsafe practices or violations of regulatory requirements or University policies associated with the use of radioactive materials will bring their concerns to Temple’s attention.
Such concerns may be reported to the Environmental Health and Radiation Safety Department, the Radiation Safety Committee, Temple University Management, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission or the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection.
There will be no discrimination or retaliation against any employee who reports such concerns. Anyone who attempts to discriminate or retaliate against an employee for reporting such concerns will be referred to appropriate administrative officials for disciplinary action, up to and including termination.
During normal business hours, the Environmental Health and Radiation Safety Department can be reached at 215-707-2520. After hours, a member of the Radiation Safety Department can be reached through the Temple Hospital page operator at 215-707-4545.
