Título A report on electromagnetic radiation surveys of video display terminals.
Información bibliográfica DHEW (NIOSH) Publication No.78-129, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, 4676 Columbia Parkway, Cincinnati, Ohio 45226, USA, Dec. 1977. 20p. Illus. 14 ref.
Resumen This survey of a newspaper printing plant was undertaken to evaluate the hazards of the different types and models of CRT display terminals. Low energy X-rays, gamma, ultraviolet, visible, infrared, radiofrequency and microwave radiation are produced. The instruments used for the measurements, including luminance, and the terminals are described. A literature review and findings of a previous survey are given to complete the information on the subject. All results agree that the radiation levels produced do not appear capable of presenting an ocular radiation hazard. Cataract and eyestrain causes are in doubt.
