This document presents an introductory course on nonionizing radiation intended for industrial hygienists, health physicists, and other professional health personnel. Topics covered in the course include nonionizing radiation sources, the attendant hazards to personnel, and the basic principles of radiation control. The importance of evaluation and control of laser and microwave radiation sources is stressed. Course objectives are to enable the student to identify a nonionizing radiation source and the radiation emitted, determine the degree of hazard to exposed personnel, and to apply the necessary protective procedures to reduce or eliminate the hazard.
