Electromagnetic Fields (EMF)
EMF’s are invisible electric and magnetic fields that are emitted by all electronic & electrical equipment when in use and are present in most workplaces.
Following the adoption of the European Directive 2013/35/EU – The Control of Electromagnetic Fields at Work (CEMFAW) Regulations 2016 came into effect in July 2016.
As part of these regulations, all organisations are required to undertake an assessment of the risks from exposure to EMF’s. Activities and equipment that are at higher risk include welding, electrical supply, magnetic equipment, medical equipment, none destructive testing (NDT), microwaves and metal working.
