What, if any concerns should I have that a new server room is being installed in close proximity to an x-ray machine?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The first problem would be that the users can’t access the servers while the X-Ray Equipment is in use. If the computers are in the X-Ray room for long enough the computers could become irradiated and cause potential health risks to anyone servicing the computers.

    Thanks Mrdenny. Sorry, I didn't explain myself very well. By close proximity, I mean next door, room above, that type of thing. The Health and Safety issues I've got covered it's the issue of potential hazard to the life of the servers I need answering.

    As long as the X-ray room is properly shielded there shouldn't be a problem at all.

    I agree with Mrdenny. If you wanted to you could hire someone with the right equipment to come out and test for electromagnetic radiation in/around your server room.
