Title Exposure to extremely low frequency (ELF) electromagnetic fields in occupations with elevated leukemia rates
Bibliographic information June 1988, Vol.3, No.6, p.189-194. Illus. 38 ref.
Abstract In this study, spot measurements were taken of ELF (< 100Hz) electric and magnetic field exposures of electrical workers at 114 worksites in various industries. For comparison, field strength was measured in 18 residences and 3 offices. The survey indicated that workers were in general more exposed to strong fields than were people in residential and office settings.
