ABSTRACT

The aim of this survey is to investigate whether the Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) emitted from various Air conditioners and Electrical Switch boards at different Labs at the Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) department of Southeast University, Bangladesh,affects the students. There is a standard threshold value recommended by World Health Organization (WHO) for both electric and magnetic fields. Electro-Magnetic Fields commonly known as Non Ionizing Radiation is emitted from high power transmission lines, computer monitor/video display unit, radio waves of different frequencies (extremely low frequency to microwaves), telecommunication, satellite, radar etc. which causes health hazards to living system and environment. There has been no such study performed in Bangladesh. Magnetic Fields around the equipments as well as the threshold values of Electric and Magnetic fields were measured.

Keywords: EMF, NIR, WHO, ELF, EF, MF
