Cincinnati, OH: U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Public Health Service, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, DHHS (NIOSH) Publication No. 98-154, 1998 Oct; :1-156
This manual is a collection of procedures for measuring occupational exposures to electric and magnetic fields (EMF). The manual's scope is primarily measurement procedures for electric and magnetic fields with extremely low frequencies (ELF = 3-3000 Hz). Also included are occupational EMF below the radio frequency range (<30 kHz). This scope covers most EMF resulting directly from DC or 50/60 Hz AC electricity, as well as from common electric and electronic equipment such as Video Display Terminals (VDT). The manual contains methods and procedures that can be used to measure and summarize occupational exposures. Both occupational and residential studies are included. Many methods are unpublished protocols which were obtained from the authors.
