Following the adoption of the EU EMF Directive 2013/35/EU, The Control of Electromagnetic Fields at Work (CEMFAW) Regulations 2016 came into effect in the UK on 1 July 2016 from the HSE.
Its purpose is to ensure employers comply with their duties under the EU EMF Directive in order to protect their employees from the known Health effects resulting from exposure to high levels of electric, magnetic & electromagnetic fields, or “EMF’s”.
EMF’s are emitted from all electrical & electronic equipment, meaning it is more important to test for EMF exposure now more than ever. The Health effects caused by electromagnetic fields depends on their frequencies & the intensity to which the employee is exposed, and therefore needs to be assessed.
EMF Testing & Reports
To ensure you fully comply with the CEMFAW Regs we undertake an initial EMF Audit and Risk Assessment at your site, then we will conduct an on-site electromagnetic field test and monitoring service using the latest state-of-the-art equipment. We provide a comprehensive & easy-to-understand Report including monitoring analysis, comparisons against the specific Exposure Limit Values (ELV’s) / Action Levels (AL’s), and any specific recommendations / EMF Action Plan needed to meet any regulatory requirements at your site.
