The high use of radiation for medical activities is the second largest contribution the radiation source that we receive, which in addition to providing benefits, can also cause harm for radiation workers, the community, and the surrounding environment. The purpose of this study was to analyze the application and implementation of radiation safety at the Installation Radiology of UNISMA Hospital in Malang. Descriptive research was conducted with a qualitative approach. It is known that 20% of hazards are in a low category; 30 % of hazards are in the moderate category, 50% are in the high category.
