Abstract The second part of the Swedish research project concerning the possible health effects of exposure to ELF electromagnetic fields and spark discharges. In an initial assessment of the work environment in the production and distribution of electricity, the different work tasks of this sector were analysed and described in detail and divided into 15 types of work. Thereafter, potential health risk factors were identified. For each of the 15 types of work, an exposure profile describing exposure frequency was created for these health risks. Similar exposure profiles were created for each potential health risk for all types of work. Detailed descriptions for the 15 types of work as well as the exposure profiles are appended.
