Electromagnetic radiation (EMR) is a physical agent, but is not homogeneous. The physics, health effects and assessment methods differ over different regions of the EMR spectrum in the occupational environment. Examples of the sources of occupational exposure include radar systems, radio and TV broadcast systems, radiofrequency diathermy, dielectric heaters and sealers and communication equipment. It is up to the occupational health professional to determine how to control exposure in the day-to-day setting. This webinar will provide the attendee with a practical understanding of non-ionizing radiation, health effects, current guidelines for exposure, and ways to control and/or prevent exposure in the occupational setting with emphasis on the sub-radiofrequency, radiofrequency and microwave regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. This webinar also provides basic information to assist in the development of workplace prevention programs. The content is suited for attendees with some knowledge of potential health concerns due to occupational exposure to electromagnetic radiation. After participating in this webinar, attendees will be able to:
- Understand the major classes of non-ionizing radiation
- Understand the health risks of occupational exposure to non-ionizing radiation in the radiofrequency range of 3 kHz–300 GHz
- Understand the units of measure and instruments used in expressing non-ionizing radiation levels
- Conduct a risk assessment for potential exposures
- Interpret exposure guidelines
- Develop a program to control and prevent exposures to non-ionizing radiation
This webinar is 2.5 hours in length and may be eligible for certification maintenance points.
