Non-Ionizing Radiation in Medicine Safety

Upcoming Course Dates

No courses were scheduled for the upcoming days.

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. Instead the energy is converted to heat, and depending on the exposure time and the energy concentration of the radiation, it can lead to burns. Therefore, those working with non-ionizing radiation must take precautions to ensure they are not exposed to excessive levels of NIR
