This course will provide you with the information needed to identify, assess, and control non-ionizing radiation hazards. Topics will include relevant standards and safety program elements associated with radiofrequency/microwave emitters, static and extremely low frequency (ELF) fields, ultraviolet light sources, and lasers. In addition, the variety of measurement equipment used to assess non-ionizing radiation levels – and the standards for proper use - will be discussed. Finally, examples of real-world NIR problems and solutions will be presented for the different types of NIR sources covered by the agenda.
Did You Know...? Enforcement of consensus NIR standards can fall under OSHA's General Duty clause.
