Non-ionising radiation encompasses two main areas: optical radiation and electromagnetic fields.

Non-ionising radiation can present a serious health hazard, which depends on the frequency of the radiation. The radiation with the shortest wavelength and highest frequency has the greatest effect on health.

This topic describes the types of non-ionising radiation including lasers, and how to manage risks associated with it.
