Non-ionising radiation is a collective term for electromagnetic, static electric and magnetic fields with frequencies of 0 to 300 GHz.

In work situations you can be exposed to non-ionising radiation (NIR) for exemple when welding, using lasers, using UV illumination techniques, using microwave sources and beams, and when performing DNA-detection using UV.
