The UAB OHS Radiation Safety Program, licensed by the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) Office of Radiation Control, requires that any UAB employees who work with radioisotopes complete a Radiation Refresher course every three years.

This course has a pre-requisite. If you have not completed the Radiation Safety Initial Training Sessions (OHS_RS102) or an approved equivalent, you will not be able to register for this course. Please check your training records. If you have any questions, please the Department of Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) at (205) 934-2487.
