Where can I find more information on the rules and regulations for storing and using radioactive materials? We have some uranyl nitrate that a colleague "acquired" from a local high school (without anyone's approval). I'm worried that we may have also acquired a heap of trouble.
We're a community college with no resources for radiation training, storage, etc. and I'm trying to determine what the appropriate recommendation is to give to my Dean in terms of dealing with the material.
I've looked at the OSHA and EPA websites, but I haven't really found a clear summary of what the key items are that relate to situation like this. Any help would be most welcome.
