Everyone in our modern society is exposed to the electric and magnetic fields (EMFs) that surround all electric devices. Workers may be exposed to high magnetic fields if they work near electrical systems that use large amounts of electric power (for example, large electric motors, generators, or the power supply or electric cables of a building). As an OESH professional, you should be familiar with the natural and man-made sources of EMFs and possible health risks from exposure. During this webinar, we will discuss the current guidelines for EMF exposure and why being aware of the frequency of the fields is important to workplace safety.
Upon completion, participants will be able to:
- Define electromagnetic fields
- Measure EMFs in the workplace.
- List the current guidelines for EMF exposure.
- Protect workers occupationally exposed to EMF.
