At its meeting in December 2008, the Radiological Safety Sub-Committee (RSS-C) discussed the issue of whether microwave ovens should be routinely tested for microwave leakage. At the request of the RSS-C the Safety Office produced the following two documents:

 

  • “Microwave Ovens: should they be routinely tested for microwave leakage?” - which provides useful background information, the sources of information used and its concluding recommendation, and can be viewed and printed by clicking here.

 

  • “Guidance for the Inspection and Safe Use of Domestic Microwave Ovens” - which sets out model checklists for both the ‘tester’ and the ‘user’, and can be viewed and printed by clicking here.

 

Both the RSS-C and the University’s Health & Safety Committee have received and discussed the above documents and agreed to formally ratify the guidance and approved its circulation to Schools & Departments for implementation.

 

Also, do take a moment to look at this website. It contains useful information (including a small movie) relating to the phenomenon known as 'Superheating'
