Microwave leakage monitoring is an important part of any Health & Safety in the Work place checklist. Our comprehensive microwave emissions/leakage testing procedures checks emission ranges up to 9.9W/cm2 to ensure that the appliance is operating within the safe and recommended emission range.
Pregnant women can also be at risk from unsafe microwave emissions. Considering that microwave leakage and emissions can potentially exposes the user to abnormal or safe levels of radiation which can cause major health problems including burns, cancer and a weakened immune system, periodic testing of emissions shouldn’t be ignored and included into your annual Health & Safety testing compliance checklist.
The European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization (CENELEC), have set a product emission limit of 50 watts per square metre (W/m2) at any point 5 cm away from the external surfaces of the oven. It is important to test all of your radiation emission appliances and devices to ensure that they are within this range.
