Microwaves use radiation to heat up your food. When functioning properly, this radiation is contained within the microwave.
The problem comes when over time the microwave is no longer able to contain the radiation to inside the device while it’s operating. This allows dangerous high-frequency electromagnetic wavelengths to seep out and into the break room and surrounding workplace.
AS/NZS 60335.2.25 and AS/NZS 3760 requires that the radiation leaking from workplace microwaves be kept below certain limits at all times. It’s recommended that employers have their workplace microwaves inspected every 12 months so that any problem areas can be corrected, preventing dangerous radiation from permeating your business.
