||Health hazards assessment of radio frequency electromagnetic fields emitted by video display terminals
||IBM Office of the Director of Health and Safety, Corporate Headquarters, Old Orchard Road, Armonk, N.Y. 10304, USA, 2 Dec. 1984. 172p. Illus. 68 ref. Appendices.
||This report reviews and summarises the findings of the literature, assesses the validity of the data, and analyses the possibilities of biological effects due to non-ionising radiation from VDTs. Discussed are: characterisation of the VDT operator environment; current safety standards; dosimetry and quantitative methods of exposure evaluation; reports associating VDTs and health problems; reported biological effects; mechanisms and thresholds for the interaction of non-ionising radiation energy and biological systems energy; conclusions and recommendations.
