Considerations About Welding And The Effects of Low

Frequency Electric and Magnetic Fields

The following is a quotation from the General Conclusions Section of

the U.S. Congress, Office of Technology Assessment, Biological Effects

of Power Frequency Electric & Magnetic Fields - Background Paper,

OTA-BP-E-63 (Washington, DC: U.S. Government Printing Office, May

1989): “...there is now a very large volume of scientific findings based

on experiments at the cellular level and from studies with animals

and people which clearly establish that low frequency magnetic fields

interact with, and produce changes in, biological systems. While most

of this work is of very high quality, the results are complex. Current

scientific understanding does not yet allow us to interpret the evidence

in a single coherent framework. Even more frustrating, it does not

yet allow us to draw definite conclusions about questions of possible

risk or to offer clear science-based advice on strategies to minimize

or avoid potential risks.”

To reduce magnetic fields in the workplace, use the following


1. Keep cables close together by twisting or taping them.

2. Arrange cables to one side and away from the operator.

3. Do not coil or drape cable around the body.

4. Keep welding power source and cables as far away from body

as practical.



The above procedures are among those also normally

recommended for pacemaker wearers. Consult your

doctor for complete information.
