Electromagnetic Radiation Producing Devices Program

This program is designed to ensure that electromagnetic radiation emitted from devices located in or on University of Delaware facilities do not expose members of the University community or the general public to levels that exceed those established by competent authorities (e.g. Federal Communications Commission, American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists, American National Standards Institute). The day to day operations of the program are managed by the University Radiation Safety Officer.

Devices covered under this program include MRI machines, transmitting communications antennae, nuclear magnetic resonance units, microwave digesters and furnaces and UV transilluminators. The Department of Environmental Health & Safety has the capability to calculate or measure the electric and or magnetic field for most of these devices.
