EMF SAFETY

SERVICES

 Are Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) Harmful? Electromagnetic radiation can harm the body if a person is exposed at a high enough level. Because of this, the UK government has put legal limits on radiation exposure for both workers (The Control of Electromagnetic Fields at Work Regulations (CEMFAW) 2016) and members of the public (EC Council Recommendation 1999). All employers now have a legal responsibility to assess their employees EMF exposure at work.  What Are The Hazards? For   low   frequency   magnetic   and   electric   fields   -   produced   by   electrical   supplies   (e.g.   50   Hz),   this   type   of   radiation   can   cause   headaches, dizziness,   confusion   and   muscle   twitching.   For   high   frequency   radio   waves   (radio-frequency   or   RF)   -   produced   by,   for   example   antennas,   this type of radiation can cause heatstroke and/or RF burns.  Can They Cause Cancer? Some   epidemiological   studies   say   there   is   a   slight   increase   in   leukaemia   around   50   Hz   electrical   equipment   above   0.4   microteslas   (a   measure   of magnetic   field)   averaged   over   24   hours   in   the   centre   of   a   room,   although   research   continues   and   authoritative   bodies   such   as   the   World   Health Organisation (WHO) and ICNIRP do not believe there is enough evidence to reduce limits. Similarly   for   high   frequency   fields,   there   are   isolated   papers   suggesting   that   radio-frequency   fields   can   cause   cancer,   but   the   scientific   evidence is not compelling and authoritative bodies remain unconvinced .  What Can Be Done? EMFcomp   Limited   is   an   expert   organisation   with   a   large   amount   of   experience   in   electromagnetic   fields   and   equipment   safety.   We   can accurately   assess   radiation   exposure   in   workplace   or   home   environments.   The   EMF   Directive   2013/35/EU,   on   which   the   UK’s   Control   Of   EMF   At Work   Regulations   are   based,   states   that   electromagnetic   radiation   assessments,   measurements   and   calculations   should   be   planned   and   carried out by competent persons at regular intervals. We   are   the   UK’s   No.   1   EMF   Safety   Specialists.   EMFcomp   surveyors   are   Chartered   Radiation   Protection   Professionals   (CRadP),   the   relevant qualification   required   to   carry   out   an   EMF   survey.   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. We   accurately   assess   the   risks   from   radiation   exposure to   electrical   equipment   and   produce   the   steps   required   to   achieve   compliance with   the   EMF   Regulations. We   can   also   examine   compliance with ICNIRP. Companies   we   have   worked   with   include:   European   Commission   •   BBC   •   IAEA   •   Public   Health   England   •   National   Grid   •   Nissan   •   Senator   Severfield • Mitsubishi • Royal Society of Canada • EDF Energy • Selex • AT&T • Carillion • AECOM • SGS • NHS •Jaguar Land Rover • Saint Gobain EMFcomp’s   experts   have   a   combined   experience   of   over   45   years   in   radiation   safety,   allowing   us   to   provide   you   with   authoritative   radiation protection   advice   and   services.   We   recently   co-wrote   the   European   Commission’s   Guide   on   EMF   Safety,   ‘The   Practical   Guide   to   the   EMF Directive’    that   forms   the   basis   for   assessing   compliance with   new   UK   EMF   legislation   ‘The   Control   of   Electromagnetic   Fields   at Work   Regulations 2016’   (CEMFAW).   There   is   a   lot   of   misinformation   in   the   public   domain   related   to   health   hazards   of   exposure   to   electromagnetic   fields.   The advice, measurement and modelling services that we provide in electromagnetic safety are based on published scientific facts.
