The EMF Directive details the minimum requirements for the protection of workers from risks to their health and safety arising, or likely to arise, from exposure to electromagnetic fields.
An EMF is produced whenever a piece of electrical or electronic equipment is used; this includes TVs, computers, mobile phones, etc. EMFs are present in virtually all workplaces and if they are of high enough intensity they can cause sensory or health effects on the human body.
In order to comply with the CEMFAW Regulations, employers must ensure that employees are not exposed to EMF levels exceeding these limits by undertaking an EMF exposure assessment. Following the assessment, an action plan may be needed in order to reduce employees’ exposure to EMFs.
EMC Hire can supply a range of EMF Meters in order to assist customers in the undertaking of this EMF exposure assessment.
