Low-frequency electromagnetic fields and their effects on occupational workers are studied briefly in research and publications. With beliefs that low frequencies are being indirectly linked to human health, extensive tests were done. In this project, we will measure and study the influence of low-frequency magnetic fields in general and occupational environments. The tests involve the use of guidelines from ICNRIP and measurement methods from international bodies. Our experiments show the necessity of understanding electromagnetic fields not only in devices but also on the power supply and cables. Our statistics and results contribute to evaluation of influence levels on human health. The evaluation is useful for design and findings of solutions in the future.
