Everyone in modern society is exposed to electric and magnetic fields (EMFs) that exist around all electric or electronic devices. Recently, scientific studies have raised questions about potential health effects of these fields. There is hot debate over the level of exposure that presents a safety risk. In the interim, as this question is examined, various national and international agencies have established workable minimum levels of exposure to EMFs…but sources are in conflict with each about the exact level. The crucial thing is that all workers should be protected by harmful EMF pollution and not have to suffer the negative short and long term consequences.
EMF Sources at Work: Cell Phones, Computers, and Just About Everything
EMFs are produced whenever electricity is used by cell phones power lines, wiring, and appliances or equipment. People in the workplace vicinity can be exposed to both electric and magnetic fields. The effects depend on which field is present, as well as the strength of the field. For instance, workers can be exposed to high magnetic fields if they work near electrical systems that use large amounts of electric power, such as large electrical motors. Higher frequencies create the potential for exposure to high electric fields, such as those present near radio transmitters, industrial process systems, or even CRT displays.
The employer should be consider the following measures:
Conduct a risk assessment and calculate EMF strengths
Make EMF Safety a priority by including it on your WHIMIS routine checklists
Eliminate or reduce as low as possible the risk of exposure and where risk can't be eliminated that measures are devised by the employer
