The aim of this study was to investigate the level of occupational exposure to static magnetic fields experienced by workers close to high voltage direct current (HVDC) cables in Finland. The measurements were conducted at a 500 kV HVDC substation in Finland from 8 different measuring points with a commercial G100 handheld Gaussmeter by Coliy Technology. As a conclusion it can be stated that the static magnetic fields occurring in Fingrid's grid are safe for workers who do not have active implanted devices.
