The Magnetic Field Safety Program is managed by the Radiation Safety office; a subset of the Office of Environmental and Emergency Management (EEM). We are here to ensure that Magnetic Fields on campus are managed properly. This section of the website regarding magnetic fields, covers topics to assist any current, or future users setting up or maintaining a magnetic field installation on campus.
Magnetic fields can be found near large magnets such as machines using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI's) and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR's). The health effects of these magnets aren't fully understood. The main hazard is to those with pacemakers or metal implants in their body. The University of Massachusetts Lowell has set the most stringent standards to assure the health and safety of the university community.
