Electric and Magnetic Fields (EMFs) are found everywhere electricity is used and come from home appliances, computers, office equipment, wiring in our homes and workplaces and electric power facilities such as substations and transmission or distribution lines.
For more than 30 years, research studies have examined questions around EMFs and health. Health agencies and many reputable scientific organizations around the world have concluded that the scientific research does not demonstrate that EMFs cause or contribute to adverse health effects. However, some scientific questions remain the subject of ongoing research.
We recognize that some members of the public continue to have concerns about EMFs and we take seriously our responsibility to understand, appropriately address, and communicate information on this issue.
Therefore, we will:
Monitor worldwide scientific research and regulatory requirements relating to EMFs and make appropriate adjustments to our existing policies, programs and practices, if necessary
Work with employees and their representatives on occupational EMF issues/developments
Support collaborative research
Design, site and operate our facilities in accordance with all regulatory requirements
Evaluate no-cost or low-cost measures to minimize EMFs when designing and siting new facilities, without compromising safety, performance, environmental and other siting criterion.
