NIOSH 1980 Oct:6 pages
Exposure to radiation was investigated at the Lexington Herald Leader newspaper company (SIC-2711) in Lexington, Kentucky, on August 12 and 13, 1980. The evaluation was requested by company management. Thirty five of 60 to 80 video display terminals (VDT) used by the newspaper were randomly selected and the ionizing and nonionizing radiation emissions were measured. All VDT radiation measurements were below OSHA standards and, often, below detectable levels. The OSHA ionizing and nonionizing standards are 2.5 millirems per hour averaged on a daily basis and 1.0 milliwatt per square centimeter averaged over 6 months, respectively. The authors conclude that no radiation hazard exists at the Lexington Herald Leader.
