Is the RSC operational?
The UCLA Radiation Safety Committees (RSC) and administrative support staff are fully operational and have contingency plans in place to maintain continuity. SafetyNet can be accessed anywhere an individual has internet access. Similarly, the RSC has the capability to conduct committee meetings and other business online. We expect this to continue even if the University suspends operations for contagion control purposes. All UCLA RSC email addresses and voicemail continue to be monitored with the same or greater frequency. For any questions or concerns, contact us at (310) 206-5601 or
