The client requested an Industrial Hygiene Survey to assess the strength of the electric and magnetic fields generated by approximately 12 pieces of equipment using induction heating coils and to evaluate any potential employee exposures to the radiofrequency (RF) radiation.

CAPACCIO’s certified industrial hygienist (CIH) evaluated the client’s radiofrequency exposures at the induction heating machines used in the facility. Measurements were made, recorded and summarized in a narrative report including a description of the operations and potential exposures evaluated, a description of the survey equipment and measurement techniques used, the results of all measurements made compared to applicable occupational exposure limits for employee exposure to RF radiation, and recommendations for additional engineering or administrative controls and / or the need for use of personal protective equipment if needed. The occupational exposure limits used are consensus standards published by The American National Standards Institute in ANSI C9122.1l‑1982, and by the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists in their latest edition of Threshold Limit Values.
