EH&S is responsible for managing ionizing and non-ionizing radiation at Harvard. In addition, we provide safety training and guidance for those working with radiation. Our top priority is to keep our personnel, laboratories, and facilities safe.
EH&S is preparing to migrate the initial laser safety training online by early 2014.

Non-ionizing radiation (generated by lasers, microwaves, infrared lamps and radiowaves) has less energy than ionizing radiation (from radionuclides and X-rays).
