* 1. All x-ray generating equipment (i.e. devices, units, etc.) on campus must be on file with EHS/RM and be registered with the Ohio Department of Health.
* 2. Ionizing radiation has sufficient energy to remove electrons from atoms in materials through which it passes.
* 3. Anyone working around radiation generating equipment must be made aware of its inherent dangers.
* 4. X-rays are unable to travel long distances and penetrate most materials.
* 5. X-ray radiation is only produced when the beam to the device is on.
* 6. It is safe to quickly change the sample while the primary beam is on with the shutter open.
* 7. The amount of radiation damage to tissue is dependent on the intensity of the radiation.
* 8. Touching the primary beam of an x-ray generating device for only a few seconds is not enough time to cause damage.
* 9. X-ray burns initially cause intense pain.
* 10. When working around radiation generating devices, the level of radiation exposure must be kept to zero.
* 11. The dose of radiation received from an x-ray device is proportional to the amount of time spent in the radiation field.
* 12. Most cabinet systems provide no interlocks to prevent accidental exposure to the primary beam.
* 13. The primary beam poses the greatest exposure risk, whereas, leaked and scattered radiation does not pose a significant exposure risk.
* 14. The use of personal dosimetry is important to monitor received dose when working with closed x-ray devices.
* 15. Each room (or area) containing x-ray equipment should be posted with a caution warning and each device should have a visual light that indicates when a beam is energized or in use.
* 16. Annual testing of all safety devices and exposure levels with a Geiger-Mueller detector is not needed.
