Guidelines on Limits of Exposure to Static Magnetic Fields (2009) - Australian Government


You may need to comply with these guidelines if you are the holder of a source licence and intend to deal with non-ionizing controlled apparatus. A controlled apparatus is one that produces harmful non-ionizing radiation when energised.

These guidelines provide a general framework for the protection of people who may be exposed to static electric or magnetic fields. The guidelines are intended as a tool for the practical safety assessment of exposure in relation to recommended exposure restrictions, and a basis for operational procedures at workplace and facilities.
