Some industrial and health-care activities require personnel to work in an environment characterized by an intense static magnetic field ($B_0$) and spatial magnetic field gradients ($\delta B_{0}/\delta r$). The new EU directive 2013/35 enforces monitoring of exposure levels and appropriate training for such workers. We present an innovative technique that: (i) implements surveillance inside a controlled area providing real-time monitoring of magnetic and electric field exposition for the whole body, (ii) can be used for training purposes placing the staff in a virtual environment. Both goals can be accomplished with a low-cost system based on consumer electronics hardware and dedicated software.
