Microwave Oven Testing
A Class Electrical Test Tag
Safety, Health and Safety Training, Compliance
Employers have a “Duty of Care”, to ensure their workplace is safe, and suggest the testing of microwave ovens in the workplace annually as a minimum standard.
Radiation leakage from a microwave often occurs through the doors and seals, which is invisible to see. These harmful radiation leakages can cause harm to the health of the users. We test to ensure omitting Radiation levels are kept at a safe level, as set by the Radiation Health Committee
What could cause a Microwave Oven to leak is – slamming the door, dirt or food particles caught in the door seals and hinges, or basic wear and tear all cause the oven door to slightly separate from the oven enclosure. Once this happens, invisible, but highly dangerous microwaves leak through the small space and cause irreversible damage and injury to the user and you may be exposing yourself & staff to dangerous levels of radiation leakage
The Australian Standard states that exposure to sufficiently high levels of microwaves will cause heating, and in the case of human tissue, excessive heating could have serious health effects such as deep tissue burns and hypothermia.
