Effects of Microwave Radiation
Why we need Microwave radiation testing
Microwave radiation testing is the only way to determine if your microwave is leaking radiation. These tests help inidicate whether the levels of radiation being emitted from your workplace microwave ovens are within Australian Standard limits.
“Exposure to sufficiently high levels of microwaves will cause heating. In the case of human tissue, excessive heating could have serious health effects, such as deep tissue burns and hyperthermia. The purpose of the Australian Standards is to avoid all adverse health effects by limiting exposure levels to levels below those at which heating occurs.”
“This Standard applies to ovens designed for domestic applications, even if used in a workplace.”
