Proceedings of the scientific workshop on the health effects of electric and magnetic fields on workers, Cincinnati, Ohio, January 30-31, 1991.
Bierbaum PJ, Peters JM eds. Cincinnati, OH: U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Public Health Service, Centers for Disease Control, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, DHHS (NIOSH) Publication No. 91-111, 1991 Jan; :1-229
Participants in this workshop discussed various aspects of the health effects of worker exposure to electric and magnetic fields. Specific topics discussed included low frequency electromagnetic fields, biological effects of extremely low frequency electromagnetic fields, health effects of exposures, occupational exposure assessment for electric and magnetic fields in the 10 to 1000 hertz frequency range, and magnetic field management. Research recommendations from workshop panels concerning in-vitro/cellular mechanism studies, epidemiologic studies, exposure assessments, and methods for reducing exposures were provided.
