Today we are exposed to electromagnetic fields from the use of wireless communication devices almost everywhere. However, occupational exposure where there is a possibility to exceed the international guidelines occurs only in work very near mobile phone base stations, and this exposure can easily be dealt with in practice in the form of instructions and administrative measures. All other devices produce exposure well below present guidelines. This low-level exposure has been discussed from a health perspective, and in this paper the exposure from sources such as mobile phones, cordless phones, WiMax, WLAN and base station antennas is discussed. The problem of exposure assessment for epidemiological studies is also dealt with in a general manner.
