Chapter 50: Non-ionizing Radiation
The purpose of this program is to ensure personnel are not exposed to hazardous levels of non-ionizing radiation. It covers review, operation, and maintenance of new and modified permanently installed sources of non-ionizing radiation capable of radiating over 1 Watt (W) at radio frequencies, defined for this program as from 3 kilohertz (kHz) to 300 gigahertz (GHz). This includes klystrons and waveguide systems; communications transmitters [not receivers]; and induction heaters and ultrasonic cleaners. Consumer items such as microwave ovens and cell phones are exempted. It applies to workers, supervisors, equipment owners, area and building managers, and the non-ionizing radiation program manager; and the Occupational Health Center.
