Purpose: This study is a first effort to measure worker exposures to magnetic field metrics derived from biophysical mechanisms, using a new waveform capture monitor. The primary purpose was to test whether these biologically-based exposure metrics are significantly elevated in electrical occupations which had been associated with cancer. Secondarily, this pilot study tested the feasibility of using this new monitor in epidemiologic studies.
