An introduction to Non-Ionising Radiation (NIR) Safety Management

15 May 2020


Webinar, 12:00 - 13:00

This webinar, which was presented by Angela Yeadon (Aurora HP), looked at an overview of managing NIR (artificial optical radiation and electromagnetic fields) safety in the workplace and NIR safety management which can present a number of challenges. The webinar addressed some of those challenges and Angela discussed some of the actions organisations should be taking in order to ensure they are compliant with the relevant legislation, in particular the Artificial Optical Radiation at Work Regulations 2010 and the Control of Electromagnetic Fields at Work Regulations 2016.
