EMF SAFETY

 What Are The Health Risks Associated With The Automotive Sector And EMF Radiation? Production processes in the automotive industry often use high currents. These high currents lead to high magnetic fields. Examples include electric welding and melting procedures, such as arc and resistance welding, induction furnaces and induction heating. Additionally,   the   charging   of   electric   and   hybrid   cars   routinely   produce   high   stray   magnetic   fields.   Large   magnetic   fields   can   generate   adverse health effects in people such as nausea, dizziness, headaches and muscle twitching.  What Is The Legal Situation With EMF Safety And Vehicle Production? Because   of   the   adverse   health   effects   caused   by   exposure   to   magnetic   fields,   the   UK   has   introduced   new   legislation   (The   Control   of Electromagnetic   Fields   at   Work   (CEMFAW)   Regulations   2016)   that   places   a   responsibility   on   employers   to   assess   and,   if   necessary,   limit   their workers exposure to this electromagnetic radiation. Failure to comply with this new legislation can lead to employee illness and ultimately enforcement action.   Who Can Carry Out These EMF Safety Assessments? The   EMF   Directive   2013/35/EU,   on   which   CEMFAW   2016   is   based   upon,   states   that   electromagnetic   radiation   assessments,   measurements and calculations should be planned and carried out by competent persons at regular intervals. The   radiation   specialists   at   EMFcomp   Limited   can   assess   your   employees’   electromagnetic   radiation   exposure   and   achieve   compliance   with the   relevant   regulations.   This   allows   your   company   to   continue   with   its   core   work   in   the   automotive   sector   whilst   complying   with   this   latest health and safety legislation. We   are   the   UK’s   No.   1   EMF   Safety   Specialists.   EMFcomp   Limited   has   a   large      amount   of   knowledge   and   experience   in   radiation   safety   and   the new   EMF   Regs.   Our   award-winning   services   are   able   to   decipher   the   details   within   EMF   legislation   and   present   them   in   easy   to   understand language.   This   enables   you   to   understand   the   issues   clearly   and   accurately   assess   the   risks   from   radiation   exposure   to   electrical   equipment and steps required to achieve compliance with the EMF Regulations.
