Non-Ionising Radiation

This is radiation that does not have sufficient energy to produce ionisation in matter, for example ultraviolet, visible light, infrared and radiofrequency radiation. The health hazards associated with this type of radiation is very wave length dependant.

When working with lasers, and depending on the particular class of laser, the main hazards are damage to the eyes and skin. However  the use of this equipment may involve many additional hazards, for example high voltages, chemicals etc.
