Electromagnetic fields in occupational and residential environment

 
Abstract:

This post is also available in: enEnglish slSlovenščina (Slovenian)

The mechanisms of deleterious effects of exposure to low and high frequency electro­magnetic fields (electromagnetic effects) in humans, especially hypersensitivity to 50 Hz electromagnetic fields with field power under 50 V/m or 1 pT, have not yet been sicientifically clarified. In Slovenia, like in other countries, multidiscipli­nary research should be intensified to concentrate on the interaction between the dose (i.e. power of electromagnetic fields, depending on the fre­quency range and time of action) and the effect (noncummulative and cummulative) and the influ­ence of this interaction on humans (occupation­al and residential environment). To be able to assess the true extent and impact of this problem in Slovenia, we need to set up a computerized national registry of occupational diseases, and dis­eases suspected of being occupational, based on an individual and epidemiological follow-up of the incidence and prevalence of occupational mor­bidity due to exposure to electromagnetic fields.
