LEGISLATION

EMF LEGISLATION

The Control of Electromagnetic Fields at Work (CEMFAW) Regulations 2016 came into force in the UK on the

1st July 2016. The regulations exist to ensure workers do not suffer adverse health effects from exposure to

electromagnetic fields.

The CEMFAW regulations in full can be found here . In summary, all employers must: Assess the levels of electromagnetic fields that their employees may be exposed to If necessary, use measurements and calculations Ensure that employee exposure is below CEMFAW Exposure Limit Values Take action if employees are exposed to electromagnetic fields above CEMFAW Exposure Limit Values When appropriate, assess the risks of a worker’s exposure and minimise those risks Take into account ‘workers at particular risk’ (e.g. workers with pacemakers, metal implants, pregnant workers) Provide information and training on the risks posed to employees by EMF exposure in the workplace Provide health surveillance or medical examination as appropriate Record the findings of the EMF exposure assessment, action plan and subsequent risk assessments. We   can   help   your   organisation   to   comply   with   these   requirements.   Our   EMF   surveys   are   the   most   efficient   way   to   assess compliance   with   CEMFAW.   Most   surveys   can   be   completed   in   one   day   at   your   site.   All   of   our   EMF   surveys   result   in   a documented   EMF   exposure   assessment   and   action   plan,   giving   you   everything   you   need   to   complete   your   own   company EMF risk assessment. The   EMF   assessment   should   be   performed   by   competent   persons.   The   relevant   qualification   is   the   Society   for   Radiological Protection’s   (SRP’s)   Chartered   Radiation   Protection   Professional   (CRadP).   Work   carried   out   by   EMFcomp   is   performed   by Chartered   Radiation   Protection   Professionals,   qualified   and   experienced   in   CEMFAW   related work. This   experience   helps   us   to identify   simple,   low-cost   solutions   to   EMF   regulation   compliance   for   you.   Our   assessments   conform   to   EN   50499   and   EN 50527. Our surveys follow best practice guidance published by the SRP. We   provide   EMF   training    that   satisfies   the   CEMFAW   requirement   to   provide   information   and   training   to   employees.   We   also provide    training    to    manager    and    supervisors,    so    you    can    fully    understand    your    responsibilities    and    understand    the requirements of an EMF exposure assessment. We   are   the   UK’s   No.   1   provider   of   assessments   for   compliance with   the   Control   of   Electromagnetic   Fields   at Work   Regulations 2016.
