Analysis of Occupational Exposure to Microwave Radiation

  • P. Czerski
  • M. Siekierzyński


Principles of analysis of environmental conditions and of comparison of various microwave worker groups are discussed. Early and actual findings concerning the health status of microwave workers, published by various Polish authors, are compared and discussed in the light of personal experiences. Advantageous effects from enforcement of safety rules may be documented by the comparison of present results with those published ten years ago.
