Abstract

Aim of special session

Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs) are virtually ubiquitous, and the large part/almost all workers are virtually exposed. Consequently, an adequate prevention of the occupational risk related to EMFs exposure is important, as recognised by authoritative Institutions as ILO and WHO. In Europe a specific Directive, the 2013/35/EU, recently implemented in European Countries, introduced occupational limits, and the legal requirement of health surveillance of EMF exposed workers. Aim of this Special Session is to give an update on activities currently ongoing for the prevention of the occupational EMF risk, and on the problems of the ‘workers at particular risk’ and of health surveillance of exposed workers.
