||This data sheet concerns exposure to electric and magnetic fields (EMFs) in the workplace. Sources of EMFs are outlined along with average magnetic field exposures for different types of workers, health effects (some studies have associated high magnetic field exposures with increased cancer risks), exposure guidelines, and basic control measures (increasing worker distance from the EMF source, use of low-EMF designs where possible, and reduction of EMF exposure times).
