RSO Section of the Health Physics Society

Academic and Medical Radiation Safety Officer group

The Academic and Medical Radiation Safety Officer group is in the process of drafting a "Model Radiation Safety Manual". The purpose of this manual is to make available to any interested RSOs a manual that has been reviewed and discussed by nearly 200 RSOs at a wide variety of institutions. We will be using this WWW page to post draft chapters and, once reviewed, revised, and approved, to post the final versions. Any interested RSO may feel free to download these chapters for their own use, modifying them as necessary. Please contact Andrew Karam ( with any comments you might have on the draft RSM chapters as they become available. The AMRSO group is an informal e-mail list server for academic and medical radiation safety officers. We currently have nearly 200 members, primarily in the US, but also in Canada, Australia, Malta, and elsewhere. Any academic or medical RSO is welcome to join and participate in our exchange of information. The list server is run by Andrew Karam and you should contact him with a request to join.
