Chemicals and radiation

The Chemical and Radiation Technical Committee (CRTC) provides the University with a forum for the consultation of health and safety matters involving hazardous materials (other than biological) that may impact on the operations of the University and its community. The Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research) oversees the activities of the CRTC.

The Committee makes decisions on behalf of and provides advice to the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research) for consideration, and to researchers on aspects of their projects regarding the legislative requirements and health and safety practices.

The Committee reviews incidents involving hazardous materials (other than biological) and ensures infrastructure (facilities and equipment) is appropriate for the type of research activities proposed.
