    Discusses four keyboarding hazards that are technique related: carpal tunnel syndrome, eyestrain, fatigue, and radiation exposure. Includes technique suggestions and a plan for limiting the amount of time behind a video display terminal. (JOW).   The type of radiation more closely associated with video terminals is very low frequency, and it falls in the range of 45 kilohertz to 60 kilohertz, or 45, to 60, cycles a second.

      The seminal opus on the subject, describing the health menace of computer terminals, among too many other man-made perils to contemplate. Simon & Schuster, $; () Radiation-free. proponents state that devices enhance safety, deliver education, improve transparency and root out corruption, strengthen democracy and provide access to the market, while opponents see various health risks and nature pollution. Solutions how to mitigate influence of mobile devices on human health and life are also discussed in the main paper.

      It was created by the Ad Hoc Video Display Terminal Committee, which included representatives from MIT’s Medical Department, Environmental Medical Service, and Safety Office. Like cell phone customers today, users of video display terminals (VDTs) in had reasonable questions about the possibility of radiation exposure from their monitors. idem: Update on visual display terminals and workers' health, WHO/OCH/ (Geneva, ). The summary statements and the recommendations in the document are here updated. EEC: Council Directive on the minimum safety and health requirements for work with display screen equipment.

A brief discussion was presented of the occupational hazards associated with various types of nonionizing radiation including radiofrequency (RF) radiation, visible radiation, ultraviolet (UV) radiation, infrared (IR) radiation, lasers, and video display terminal (VDT) radiation.

The electromagnetic spectrum was depicted. Radiation emitted by VDTs lies behind the concerns about possible reproductive hazards. Though VDTs produce radiation with frequencies spanning the electromagnetic spectrum (from X-rays to radio frequency waves), protective shielding in the equipment prevents most of it from escaping, For example, lead in the glass screen traps X-rays.
