Citizens must be informed by the pollution that surround them, even if it is visible even it is invisible.
Media frequently speak about visible pollution because every one can see or hear something, and it is more simple describe a visible entity instead something invisible and immaterial. Moreover it is a difficult thematic, it is in constant evolution and only expert people can research, and explain, the physical aspects. Ambiguous Pamphlet can generate unfounded panic or otherwise it can be underrate the problem. So, few people speak about pollution due to electromagnetic fields (electro smog) but this is important argument in our time where we depend by electronical devices.
There are many sources that radiate electromagnetic fields and that surround them:
- power lines (viaducts etc.).
- TV and radio broadcasting transmitters;
- systems for mobile phones;
- equipment used in offices;
- various household appliances;
- medical equipment.
Everyone of this devices emit electromagnetic radiation that can have interaction, also dangerous, with human body.
Some people are more sensible than other at the effects due to interaction between electromagnetic fields and environment (child for example), these people may be protect in the place in which they live (nursery school, school, touristic centre, town). Public administration may inform themselves on all the kind of pollution present in these zone
MEASUREMENTS AND MONITORING
The assessment of respect for the values of electromagnetic, magnetic and electrical field takes place according to the current legislation. Measurements are made by qualified technicians with professional instrumentation and methodologies.
The presence of radiations of the source considered is verified through surveys and monitoring, it is evaluated the intensity and then we inform the customer about the possible effects.
Time of measurements depends from the sources characteristics, they must be long enough to a correct assessment of the risk related to them.
Subsequently it is prepared a Technical Report for the Risk Assessment in which it is described the values observed during the measurement campaign.
