Abstract

In the framework of the recent European Directive 2013/35/EU, a case study is presented to assess compliance with exposure limit values (ELVs) for workers exposed to multiple frequency electromagnetic sources. A real site was investigated, where transmitting stations of both broadcasting and wireless communications services are present. Electromagnetic field measurements were performed to characterize the exposure scenario, which was numerically simulated to calculate the absorption of energy in an anthropomorphic voxel model. Finally, compliance with relevant ELVs was assessed in terms of an index of compliance, defined according to an appropriate metric for combined multi-frequency exposure. © 2015 EurAAP.
