A laboratory manual for the study of nonionizing radiation, designed for industrial hygienists, health physicists and other health personnel, is presented. Topics include nonionizing radiation sources, radiation hazards, and basic principles of radiation control. Evaluation and control of laser and microwave radiation sources are stressed. The author concludes that this course should allow the trainee to be able to identify a nonionizing radiation source and the radiation emitted, determine to degree of hazard to exposed personnel, and apply the necessary protective procedures to reduce or eliminate the hazard to personnel.
