A major factor of anxiety and speculation come from electromagnetic fields which represent one of the most common and fastest increasing environmental issues. The purpose of this work is to examine existing electric and magnetic fields’ levels in a typical house and an office at very low frequency, and comparing the measurement results with the prior studies and also with the ICNIRP standard limits. This study also comprises the three phase conductors’ electromagnetic fields analysis at a point. As a result, it is observed that the measured values are approaching to the calculated ones.
