Abstract The objectives of this literature survey were to establish the current state of scientific understanding with respect to occupational exposure to electromagnetic fields and to develop a framework enabling medical biophysics departments to evaluate their possible harmfulness for workers. This framework comprises five points: precise definition of exposure; study of relevant regulations and standards; study of literature on epidemiology and biological effects; protection in cases of accidental over-exposure; sending of documentation in support of the answer given.
