Publication Date 1978
Page Count 230
Abstract The information provided in this instructors' manual was intended for use in a college setting for students at an advanced level of industrial hygiene training. This module covered nonionizing and ionizing radiation. Information was reviewed concerning the basic properties, sources, biological effects, and threshold limit values of nonionizing radiation, including ultraviolet, infrared, radio frequencies, microwaves, and lasers. Also included was a discussion of the various applications nonionizing radiation, and related hazards. A review was presented of methods for evaluating and controlling ultraviolet and microwave radiation and lasers. The manual contained a review of the chemistry and physics of ionizing radiation, including both particulate and electromagnetic wave radiation, and discussion of the various applications of ionizing radiation and related hazards. Instruments typically used to survey and monitor ionizing radiation sources were discussed, including ion chambers, proportional counters, C-meters, dosimeters, and film badges.
