The electric power transformers are very important part of the modern electric power and transmission line network systems. They are a high level source of the electromagnetic fields which can effect the workers health in the station. In this research, an electric and magnetic fields are generated due to the operation of the substation power distribution of 132/33 kV that investigated in order to avoid the workers overexposure these fields workers. This research has two phases a mathematical calculations and practical measurements. The intensities of the electric and magnetic fields have been measured at a substation using EMF tester device. The safe zones around the dangerous equipment have been determined. A comparison between the obtained results and the standard safety guideline limits has been done and the comparison results shows that they are within the acceptable limits.
