UC Davis offers guidance for safely using magnets and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) devices.

The Static Magnetic Fields Safety Manual describes the hazards associated with magnetic fields and the appropriate controls and safe work practices necessary to reduce these hazards to faculty, staff, students and visitors.

This guide also presents a summary of the assessment of the potential hazards, and descriptions of the minimum precautions necessary to ensure personnel and equipment safety.
