2016: Precautionary Strategies to Reduce Worker Exposures to Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) Magnetic Fields, a Possible Carcinogen
by Joseph D. Bowman, PhD, of the Engineering and Physical Hazards Branch at the National Institute for Occupational Safety (NIOSH)
Slide presentation to the Collaborative on Health and the Environment
Dr. Joseph Bowman is a senior research chemist with NIOSH and is currently assessing occupational EMF exposures for the seven-country INTEROCC study of brain cancer. He is also developing NIOSH publications on strategies for managing workplace exposures to lower frequency EMF. Three of his 60 publications have received honorable mentions for NIOSH and CDC awards. Starting with a 1986 epidemiologic study of childhood leukemia risks from electric and magnetic fields in Los Angeles, he has focused on assessing exposure to EMF from power lines, cell phones, and other sources in workplaces and the environment. He received a PhD in physical chemistry from the University of Wisconsin in 1971 and was a Certified Industrial Hygienist from 1982 – 2011.
