Overview

Electromagnetic Fields - Control of EMF at Work Regulations

The EMF Directive of 2013 has been transposed into UK law as the Control of EMF at Work regulations.

This requires employers to risk assess exposure to EMFs and reduce exposure where exposure to EMFs and reduce exposure where Exposure Limit Values are exceeded.

It also requires employers to identify "Workers at Particular Risk" such as those with pacemakers, other implanted devices and pregnant workers.

This may sound particularly daunting to SMEs, and the aim of this presentation is:

  • To give a definition of what EMF is;
  • Where EMF, HF and LF fields may be found;
  • Intentional and unintentional EMF emitters;
  • Direct effects on an electromagnetic field and how these may become the cause of a safety or health hazard;
  • To sign post us to some practical guides, case studies and a guide for SMEs;
  • To give a list of workers who may be at risk;
  • How and where initial risk assessments should be taken in the workplace.
