||Review of occupational exposure to optical radiation and electric and magnetic fields with regard to the proposed CEC physical agents directive
||HMSO Books, P.O. Box 276, London SW8 5DT, United Kingdom, Jan. 1994. vi, 66p. 51 ref. Price: GBP 10.00.
||Part 1 of this review considers occupational exposure to optical radiation, ultra-violet radiation, lasers and infrared radiation. It is concluded that if suitable control measures are enforced, there should be very few cases where optical radiation emissions from artificial sources exceed the ceiling levels in the proposed CEC Directive; areas where overexposure may occur are highlighted. Part 2 covers occupational exposure to electric and magnetic fields, static fields, extremely low frequency fields, broadcast and telecommunications, radar and navigation, heating, visual display units and other sources and identifies a number of areas where the action and hazardous activity levels proposed by CEC may be exceeded.
