Documents developed in Sweden during the 1990s showing a connection between electromagnetic fields and symptoms are once again in the public domain.
The documents were produced by the Swedish Union of Clerical and Technical Employees in Industry (SiF). They presented results of several surveys which found that office workers experienced a range of uncomfortable symptoms and recommended strategies for reducing exposure in the IT environment.
They were later withdrawn and have not been in the public domain for some years.
The documents have recently been published online by Dr Don Masich of EMFacts and are now freely available at: http://www.emfacts.com/norisk/
They are entitled:
- ‘No Risk in the IT environment’
- ‘Hypersensitive in IT Environments’
- ‘The Healthy Office newsletter (1999)’
- ‘Working environment for people and computers’.
