IEEE Standard for Radio-Frequency Energy and Current-Flow Symbols

Symbols to inform people about the presence of potentially hazardous levels of radiofrequency energy or the presence of contact current hazards in the frequency range of 3 kHz to 300 GHz are specified in this standard. Guidance is given about how these symbols should be used on warning signs and labels. (The PDF of this standards is available at no cost.

IEEE Draft Standard for Electromagnetic Energy Safety Programs, 0 Hz to 300 GHz

The required elements for developing, implementing, and administering effective electromagnetic energy (EME) safety programs (SPs) to achieve compliance with applicable human exposure limits are specified. Concomitant EME hazards, such as those caused by interference to medical devices, ignition of flammable atmospheres, and detonation of explosive devices, are also addressed. Well-established safety processes are used to manage potential EME hazards from known EME sources in the 0 Hz to 300 GHz frequency range. SP elements for identifying EME hazard locations, implementing needed controls, and training personnel, are included. Additional descriptions and examples of the SP elements and various factors that can be helpful when assessing potential hazards and creating SPs are annexed.
