[Caleb B Kincaid; United States. Bureau of Radiological Health.]. Glenn Research Center Title: Occupational Health Programs Manual Non-ionizing Radiation Safety Document No.: GLP -QS Rev.: D Printed copies are uncontrolled and may not reflect current information. Non-Ionizing Radiation Sources General Certain devices such as lasers and microwave generators produce electromagnetic radiation with frequencies considerably lower than ionizing sources (x-rays, gamma rays) but which are still able to produce biological damage by mechanisms other than ionization.

Non-Ionizing Radiation Safety Policy. It is the policy of the University of California at Berkeley to provide a workplace safe from the known hazards of NIR by assuring compliance with federal and state safety regulations. Presently, it is not clear if Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) Radiation poses any hazard to human health. The use of equipment which produces non-ionizing radiation within LSU System for official business is used in a manner that will minimize risks to health and safety of the faculty, staff, students, and the general public. b. The identification of non-ionizing radiation source hazards. NONIONIZING RADIATION PRODUCING DEVICE, NONIONIZING SOURCE - Any device capable of producing nonionizing radiation that has the potential for producing a health hazard to user personnel. OPERATION/USE - The performance of a nonionizing radiation device or system over the full range of its intended function (normal operation/use). Introduction to Laser Safety. Other Resources. Nonionizing Radiation. New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP). Provides links to information on different sources of non-ionizing radiation such as heat sealers, microwave .

The book also covers such topics as organization and management of nonionizing radiation safety programs (with special emphasis on laser safety programs) and management of radioactive waste, personnel monitoring programs, radiation accident victims, internal exposure, relative radiotoxicity and radiation therapy : Hardcover. The Non-Ionizing Radiation (NIR) Safety Program is designed to help protect employees, students and the general public from the harmful effects of non-ionizing radiation. Non-ionizing radiation (NIR) refers to electromagnetic radiation that does not have sufficient energy to ionize (remove electrons from) atoms or molecules. NDSU Radiation Safety Handbook 2 A. Radiation Safety Committee Due to the increased utilization of ionizing radiation on the campus, it was deemed appropriate and necessary that a committee be appointed to formulate policies, consistent with existing laws that assure radiological safety for all personnel.
