    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies requirements and recommendations to prevent accidents in laboratories when using equipment generating non-ionizing radiations including sound and ultrasound.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard—(a) provides information on non-ionizing radiations encountered in laboratories and the associated hazards; and(b) specifies requirements and gives recommendations in order to prevent injury by these radiations or by other hazards associated with their use. This Standard does not contain an exhaustive treatment of usage and safety requirements for non-ionizing radiations and reference should be made to other appropriate documents. NOTES: 1 This Standard does not cover field work performed outside the laboratory or exposure of persons to non-ionizing radiations for medical purposes. 2 This Standard does not cover requirements for medical examinations for laboratory personnel who may be exposed to non-ionizing radiations. Such medical examinations may be designated in codes of practice, other Standards or the requirements of the regulatory authorities. 3 The wavelength band designations given in this Standard are approximate and reflect the conventions used within the referenced literature. 4 Appendix A provides a schematic arrangement of the non-ionizing electromagnetic spectrum. 5 Appendix B provides advisory material dealing with optical fibre systems. 6 Appendix C provides a listing of documents giving other information on non-ionizing radiations.
