||Within the framework of a general evaluation of occupational hazards, an evaluation was undertaken on the exposure to electromagnetic fields among workers providing electrotherapy care. Following a description of electrotherapy equipment and techniques, and of the biological effects of magnetic fields, the evaluation procedure is described. Findings show that workers are exposed to levels of electromagnetic radiation far below threshold limit values. Recommendations are made concerning the surveillance of workers and the protective measures to be implemented.
