US CDC/NIOSH developing strategies for managing workplace exposures to extremely low-frequency (ELF) magnetic fields (MF)
Precautionary Control Measures for Occupational ELF Magnetic Fields
Jun 22, 2016
Join us Wednesday, June 22, 2016 at Pacific Time/1:00pm Eastern Time for a discussion with Dr. Joseph Bowman on precautionary control measures for occupational exposure to extremely low-frequency (ELF) magnetic fields (MF).
Dr. Joseph Bowman is a senior Research Chemist with NIOSH (http://www.cdc.gov/niosh) and is currently assessing occupational EMF exposures for the seven-country INTEROCC study of brain cancer. He is also developing NIOSH publications on strategies for managing workplace exposures to lower frequency EMF. Three of his 60 publications have received honorable mentions for NIOSH and CDC awards. Starting with a 1986 epidemiologic study of childhood leukemia risks from electric and magnetic fields in Los Angeles, he has focused on assessing exposure to EMF from power lines, cell phones, and other sources in workplaces and the environment. He received a PhD in physical chemistry from the University of Wisconsin in 1971 and was a Certified Industrial Hygienist from 1982 – 2011.
This call will be hosted by the EMF working group and moderated by Antoinette (Toni) Stein, PhD. This call will last 30 minutes and will not be recorded. Questions will be taken through our Q&A comments page.
