Because of the recent rapid advances in the development of ships with a larger proportion of electrical and electronic equipment, The usable frequency spread spectrum on ships is global trend. Therefore, concerns have been raised regarding the possible hazardous health effects of electromagnetic fields radiating from electronic devices. Although studies and investments on electro-magnetic fields in terrestrial areas are being conducted, they are not applied to a ship. In this paper, we measured electromagnetic fields in ship propulsion systems, and we analyzed the measured values against Korean and international standards. While the measured results satisfied the Korean standard, the Italian standard was not met in the switchboard area. However, the measured values were close to meeting the Italian standard. Therefore, further studies should be conducted for performing a comparative analysis of data in order to specify a standard of electromagnetic fields in propulsion systems that can be applied in the construction of government infrastructures.
