Abstract
In response to a request from management, an investigation was begun into occupational exposures to electric and magnetic fields at the Getter Corporation of America (SIC-5065), Cleveland, Ohio. The company manufactured small electronic compounds called getters which are placed inside various vacuum devices such as television picture tubes, infrared image detectors, X-ray image intensifiers, and display devices. At two locations on site the employees were exposed to radiofrequency radiation (RFR) during the manufacturing of the getters. These two locations were the quality control and the technology laboratory areas. The maximum subradiofrequency electric and magnetic field levels measured in and around the facility were 1,300 volts per meter and 450 milligauss, respectively. The maximum level of 1,300 volts per meter was measured outside the facility and within the electrical utility's right of way zone. The maximum magnetic field level was measured outside the facility near a fence surrounding a small electrical substation in the rear. The author concludes that there was no health hazard in existence at the time of this study from exposure to electric or magnetic fields.
