Physics of the Environment

Non-ionizing radiations (electromagnetic fields)

Both work environment and everyday life expose people to electromagnetic fields of various frequencies and intensities. The most frequent sources of electromagnetic fields are electrical equipment, radio and TV sets, office equipment, home appliances. In the work environment the sources of electromagnetic fields are again the electro-thermal equipment and medical devices.
Human exposure to electromagnetic fields can be the cause of ill health and accidents. Moreover, the use of electrical and electronic equipment can result in phenomena of interference.


  • Identify sources generating electromagnetic fields;
  • Measure and assess electromagnetic fields in the work atmosphere and environment;
  • Develop applicative studies and researches to prevent and control the risks of accident and occupational diseases specific to electromagnetic fields of the work atmosphere;
  • Provide consultancy and assistance to companies.
