Is it safe to sit above the battery in a Hybrid?

Is the Yaris Hybrid 2012 a safe car regarding electromagnetic radiation? Is there a health risk?

My kids will be sitting in the back, and that question is holding me from buying it?

Must be or they would not be allowed to sell it. I have never ever heard of any human electromagnetic radiation problems with any hybrid cars ever.
