Radiation Safety

Radiation Machine (X-ray)

A radiation machine is any device capable of electrically producing ionizing radiation (the term excludes devices containing radioactive material).


Radiofrequency refers to radiation in the 3 kilohertz (kHz) to 300 gigahertz (GHz) region of the electrometric spectrum. 

Magnetic Fields

Magnetic fields refer to a strong static magnet, a nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) system or a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system.

Laser Safety

A laser is defined as any Class 3B or Class 4 laser system or high intensity light source.

Extremely Low Frequency

Extremely low frequency refers to electric and magnetic fields in the 1 hertz (Hz) to 100 kilohertz (kHz) region of the electrometric spectrum.
