||Characterization of the 60-Hz magnetic fields in schools of the Carleton Board of Education

||Magnetic field levels in 79 schools in Canada were measured. Average levels were lower than in many other occupational environments; typing rooms exhibited the highest levels. There was a trend for stronger fields in secondary schools than in elementary or intermediate schools. Sources accounting for the largest hot spots were wires in the floor and electric typewriters. Only 6 of the 350 identifiable hot spots were attributable to nearby high voltage power lines. Results show that magnetic fields in schools may be kept at levels below 0.1ÁT.
