Notes and Changes:
• The text was rewritten to reflect improved knowledge of the biological effects from magnetic fields and to align the format with that of other industrial hygiene chapters.
• The exposure limits are unchanged and are set equal to the 2015 ACGIH TLVs. The whole body values for general workers and medical device wearers are unchanged. The TLV for limbs is increased in Section 4.0, Procedures.
• The TLVs now omit the 8-hour Time Weighted Average, and include a separate limit (also in Section 4.0) for workers with special training and controlled workplace environments.
• Chapter updated to new FESHM Format along with references to Environment, Safety and Health (ESH) Section changed to Environment, Safety, Health, and Quality (ESH&Q) Section.
