||Effects of electric field reduction in visual display units on skin symptoms
||Apr. 2001, Vol.27, No.2, p.140-145. 21 ref.
||120 office workers in 11 companies with reported facial skin complaints were randomly selected for this double blind study. Static electric fields surrounding visual display unit were reduced in the intervention group but not in the control group. The intervention group reported significantly fewer facial skin complaints than did the control group. The specified intervention can probably help reduce facial skin complaints in workers in offices with high dust concentrations.
