Radiation (UV IR RF) Labels

Clarion Safety’s radiation labels warn of hazards in ionizing and non-ionizing radiation levels related to x-rays, ultraviolet (UV), infrared (IR), and radio frequency (RF) exposure. Ionizing radiation is any electromagnetic or particulate radiation capable of producing ion pairs by interaction with matter. This type of radiation alters DNA molecules causing cell death or mutation in those exposed to it. This is why UV light safety is so important for the long-term health of employees, especially those working for several years around radiation causing equipment or outdoor conditions. Both x-ray hazards and UV hazards fall under ionizing radiation. RF and IR hazards are non-ionizing radiation, which refers to any type of electromagnetic radiation that does not carry enough energy per quantum to ionize atoms or molecules (remove electrons). This type of radiation is less harmful than ionizing radiation, but can still cause sunburn, melanomas, and skin cancers from repeated exposure. 

Used widely by equipment manufacturers serving the medical, dental, inspection/control, semiconductor, communications, and defense industries, these radiation warning labels assist in compliance with regulatory requirements. Radiation safety signs are also available for posting in locations where UV, IR, and RF equipment is installed.

Use our radiation labels to mark hazardous areas and dangerous actions near and on your equipment. Select from multi-symbol and text, symbol only, symbol and text, and wordless formatted labels, available in both indoor and outdoor formats.  If our labels are close but not exactly what you’re looking for, you can use our online design your own tool or contact our team of safety professionals to customize your own labels, signs, and tags.
