scope:

This standard provides recommendations to protect personnel in military environments against established adverse health effects associated with exposure to electric, magnetic, and electromagnetic fields, induced and contact current, and contact and arcing voltages over the frequency range of 0 Hz to 300 GHz. The recommendations, expressed as dosimetric reference limits (DRLs) and exposure reference levels (ERLs), incorporate safety factors that address uncertainties such as uncertainties in the experimental data, measurement uncertainties, and differences in threshold variability between individuals, so as to establish an appropriate margin of safety. The DRLs are expressed in terms of in situ electric field strength, specific absorption rate (SAR), and incident power density. The ERLs are expressed in terms of environmental exposure fields and power densities. In the case of contact current, however, only ERLs are provided. The DRLs and ERLs are intended to protect against established adverse human health effects associated with electrostimulation of tissue and partial and whole-body heating, but may not protect against electromagnetic interference (EMI) with implanted medical devices. This standard does not apply to exposure of informed volunteers in medical or scientific research studies subject to approval by institutional review boards for the use of human subjects, nor does it include exposure assessment techniques, risk management/safety program procedures, warning sign design, procedures for medical treatment of suspected overexposures, nor assessment of hazards associated with exposure of ordnance, fuel, or electro-explosive devices.1

Purpose

The purpose of this standard is to provide science-based exposure limits for incorporation into a safety and occupational health (SOH) risk management program to protect personnel in a military workplace against established adverse health effects associated with exposure to electric, magnetic and electromagnetic fields, induced and contact currents, and contact (and arcing) voltages over the frequency range of 0 Hz to 300 GHz.
