Measurements of ELF Electromagnetic Fields in Jordan Exposure Limits and Recommendations

H. M. A. Hamdan

Abstract


In view of the public concern over the effect of extremely low frequency electrical and magnetic fields on the human health, it is necessary to measure the level encountered in Jordan at different locations in the vicinity of electrical appliances, switchgears, transformers, cables, transmission lines, and any electrical devices. The danger posed by these devices is assessed by comparing the measured values with the guideline limits as defined by international standards. Exposure limits are suggested at the country level and recommendations are made for the public and the occupational staff to avoid or at least minimize the risk of exposure to these fields.
