Radiation Safety Officer
The Radiation Safety Officer (RSO) has responsibility for the overall conduct of the program and compliance with license requirements. The RSO has the authority to suspend laboratory operations immediately, in part or in whole, if the laboratory supervisor fails to maintain full compliance with the Juniata College radiation safety program.

If suspension of operations is necessary, the RSO will generate a written incident investigation. This report will describe the reasons for suspension, the actions taken and the recommended corrective actions that need to be implemented to prevent recurrence.

Changes to written procedures or other documents related to the radiation safety program must be authorized by the RSO before implementation. Provided the change does not alter 10CFR20 requirements, Title 25 requirements or license conditions, the change need not be submitted to the USNRC or PADEP as an amendment request.
