||Occupational exposure of UK adults to extremely low frequency magnetic fields
||Sep. 2009, Vol.66, No.9, p.619-627. 35 ref.
||The objective of this study was to assess levels of occupational exposure to extremely low frequency (ELF) magnetic fields (MF) in the United Kingdom and to test the use of a job-exposure matrix to assign exposures. Personal ELF MF dosimetry measurements were carried out continuously during three days in 317 subjects, who recorded their times spent in occupational, travel and various activities. Overall exposure was significantly higher at work than at home. Elevated average occupational exposure was found for welding trades, printers, telephone operators and filing and other records assistants. Other findings are discussed.
