PC95.7 - Recommended Practice for Radio Frequency Safety Programs, 0 Hz to 300 GHz
Project Details
This recommended practice presents guidelines and procedures that could form the basis of a safety program that provides reasonable and adequate guidance for preventing exposures above applicable exposure limits associated with electromagnetic energy sources that operate in the frequency range of 0 Hz to 300 GHz. This is a general-purpose document intended for application in most exposure scenarios with the goal of avoiding potentially hazardous exposures to electromagnetic fields (EMF), currents, and/or contact voltages. In some complex cases, however, the required elements of an adequate safety program may exceed those described in this document. In such cases, additional guidance may be necessary to effect a satisfactory safety solution. There are many ways of accomplishing the goal of a satisfactory EMF safety program. While this recommended practice outlines certain schemes for providing a safe environment for persons who may be exposed to excessive levels of electromagnetic energy, other schemes may be equally effective.
