“The EMF exposures for many jobs have not been measured, but the following table shows average exposures to magnetic fields for typical workers who use electric equipment. Exposures during a work shift vary with the strength of the magnetic field, the worker s distance from the EMF source, and the time the worker spends in the field. For comparison, the table also lists worker exposures off the job.”

“Average magnetic field exposures for various types of workers (in milligauss*)”

                                    Average daily exposures
        Type of worker                 Median**     Range
Workers on the job:
    Clerical workers without
       computers                       0.5       0.2 - 2.0
    Clerical workers with
       computers                       1.2       0.5 - 4.5
    Machinists                         1.9       0.6 - 27.6
    Electric line workers              2.5       0.5 - 34.8
    Electricians                       5.4       0.8 - 34.0
    Welders                            8.2       1.7 - 96.0
 Workers off the job
    (home, travel, etc.)               0.9       0.3 - 3.7

*Magnetic fields are often measured in gauss or milligauss (one thousandth of a gauss = 1 milligauss).
**The median is the middle measurement: half the workers have average daily exposures above this point and half below.”

As you learn more and more about the platform, take notes and come up
with ideas on how to use it better. If you like something from other people’s board you can “re-pin”
it to your own. The more powerful the image, the more interest you will provoke in visitors to your
profile which in turn will result in your profile
attracting more followers.
