New students, staff or faculty working with radioactive materials or radiation-producing devices need to register as radiation workers, attend appropriate training for the research or work being performed and acquire badging as appropriate.
Pregnant Radiation Workers
Pregnant radiation workers are encouraged to minimize their exposure to occupational radiation sources at North Carolina State University. A pregnant radiation worker may declare her pregnancy and be issued appropriate badging or be enrolled in bioassay monitoring. This form is used by a radiation worker to formally make a voluntary pregnancy notification directly to the Radiation Safety staff. Pregnancy declaration is solely left to the radiation worker’s discretion, but is highly recommended both for the well-being of the worker and the developing fetus. This declaration should be made as soon as the radiation worker is aware of the pregnancy.
