Background
The specific term of Physical Agents can be noted to be used commonly for purposes of describing the range of various sources for energy that possess the capabilities to cause any injuries or else diseases for the workers (Hughes and Fe
ett 2015; Jespen 2016; Tian et al. 2018). Some of the examples in the context physical agents comprise vi
ation, noise, electricity, electromagnetic radiations, as well as extremes in temperature (Hughes and Fe
ett 2015; Jespen 2016; Tian et al. 2018). The focus of this report shall be non-ionising radiation at the workplace of the author. The non-ionising radiation is highly relevant to the workplace on account of various reasons. The detailed discussion of various aspects concerning the same has been presented in this report.
Non-Ionising Radiation
The exposure towards natural form of optical radiations like sunlight represents the risk amongst the outdoor workers (Hofmann et al. 2017; Schnall et al. 2018; Bam
a et al. 2014). Over-exposure to the skin in terms of UV radiation within sunlight could lead to skin cancers as well as eye damages (Hofmann et al. 2017; Schnall et al. 2018; Bam
a et al. 2014). Occupations with specific risk encompass ones which involve longer periods in outdoor work like that of construction, utilities, road maintenance, etc., agriculture / horticulture / forestry, Marine related activities like for example in shore / off shore sailing, fishing, fish farming, window cleaning, postal as well as delivery services, waste collection, leisure like that of workers in golf course, attendants for outdoor pool, beach workers, etc., workers need to avoid the prolonged exposures towards sunlight for preventing to get reddening of skin as the same represents signs for skin damage (Hofmann et al. 2017; Schnall et al. 2018; Bam
a et al. 2014).
Exposure to the artificial forms of optical radiations could arise by way of emitted light from that of most of the artificial sources, like that of light in various forms like that of ultraviolet, visible, lasers, and infra-red, and yet excludes the sunlight (Hofmann et al. 2017; Schnall et al. 2018; Bam
a et al. 2014). The impacts from the exposure towards artificial form of optical radiations could lead to impacts of both chronic as well as acute nature, impacting primarily skin and the eyes (Hofmann et al. 2017; Schnall et al. 2018; Bam
a et al. 2014). Wherein the skin gets affected, the people exposed could suffer from shorter term impacts like reddening / erythema, burns as well as blistering (Hofmann et al. 2017; Schnall et al. 2018; Bam
a et al. 2014). Longer term exposures could lead to the ageing of skin, that is, elastosis as well as skin...
