Electromagnetic fields in the built environment – design for minimal radiation exposure

This paper explores the evidence that another factor to be considered in Sick Building Syndrome and Indoor Environment Quality is exposure to prolonged and excessive electromagnetic fields (EMFs).  Enough evidence now exists to justify taking a precautionary approach in building design to significantly reduce and minimise occupant exposure at relatively little cost at the planning and design stage.
