The Radiation Protection Office provides advice on the installation and use of X-ray equipment, lasers, UV, microwave and radio-frequency devices and on the hazards of working with radioactive substances.


Local rules are applied to any work involving ionising or non-ionising radiation, substances or devices.

Any University of Liverpool staff member who works with ionising radiation should be registered with the Radiation Protection Office.
