Options to minimise EMF/RF/static field exposures in office environments - by Katherina Gustavs

Katherine Gustavs is a building biology environmental consultant (IBN), worki in British Columbia, with an Environmental and Occupational Health Certificate from the University of Victoria, dedicated to assisting clients in better understanding how their well-being is affected by their physical environment (e.g. electromagnetic, chemical, and microbiological factors) and developing strategies how to best eliminate or drastically reduce their exposures to these potential sources of environmental stress.

She offers EMR surveys according to the Standard of Building Biology Testing Methods and follow in my risk assessment the Building Biology Evaluation Guidelines as well as other progressive low-emission guidelines where applicable. Indoor air quality and other environmental aspects are also taken into account. All my recommendations are based on the precautionary principle to create healthy work as well as living environments and to promote long-term health.


Offices are abuzz with electromagnetic hazards. Do health regulations protect us? From acute, thermal effects: yes. From long-term effects of low-level exposures: no. In this 150-page paper, find out what the natural background levels are, how much energy the electronic devices you are using emit, and what you can do to lower your exposure (pages 39-66). After taking a closer look at documented health effects and electromagnetic hypersensitivity, it becomes clear why it is so important to follow the precautionary approach.
