The Control of Electromagnetic Fields at Work Regulations 2016

The Control of Electronic Fields in the Workplace Regulations 2016 updates the standards established by the European Commission’s Directive 2013/35/EU. That rule went into effect in 2016. This Directive lays out the bare minimum that must be met to protect workers from potential health and safety risks associated with electromagnetic field (EMF) exposure. These threats may already be on people’s minds.

The CEMFAW Regulations mandate that organizations assess the risk of electromagnetic field (EMF) exposure to their personnel in light of set “activity levels” and “exposure limit values” (ELVs).The UK has adopted the 2013 EU Directive.These standards were developed for Occupational Exposure to EMF and are based on values from ICNIRP 2010.

According to the Control of Electromagnetic Fields at Work Regulations, also known as the CEMFAW Regulations (ELVs) businesses in the United Kingdom are required to conduct Electromagnetic Field EMF Assessment of employee exposure to EMFs.

Employers’ Responsibility their Employees

The management of health and safety risks in the workplace is an integral aspect of any well-run firm. The Management of Health and Safety in Employment Regulations 1999, which went into effect that same year, mandate just such a policy. The onus is on businesses to assess the risks to their employees, including those caused by electromagnetic fields (EMFs), and then to implement measures designed to mitigate those risks. For the sake of worker safety, businesses should do Electromagnetic Field EMF Exposure Assessments.

The well-being of workers is an employer’s responsibility. To remain in compliance with the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations, that is what must occur. In order to safeguard its staff, businesses should assess risks, such as those posed by electromagnetic fields (EMFs).

The material that follows provides a rundown of the duties that are legally imposed on employers:

Provide your employees with education and training on the potential dangers presented by electromagnetic fields (EMFs) in the workplace, as well as details on the steps being taken to reduce or control exposure. Their safety advocates should also have access to this data at all times.

– Provide health monitoring in addition to regular medical checkups.

– Assess the risk of electromagnetic field exposure to your employees (EMFs).

– If an employee is subjected to EMFs in excess of the ELVs, steps should be taken to reduce their exposure.

– Create and implement a strategy to ensure you stay inside your exposure limits whenever you need to.

– Risks associated with an employee’s exposure should be evaluated and, if possible, mitigated or eliminated. Be mindful of workers who are more vulnerable than others, such as expectant mothers and those who use active or passive medical equipment

Thank you EMF Inspectrions Ltd for doing our Low Frequency EMF Survey. We had Galin who came to do the survey and he was brilliant. Not only was he polite but very informative and knew his stuff. We were in the process of purchasing a propery next to an electrical sub-station and was worried that the EMF could be penetrating the property. Galin went round the entire property inside and out, down the alley and in the garden and took readings. He explained the different levels of readings and reassured us that all of our readings were below the government guidelines. We are so pleased with the service. We booked on a Monday and had the survey on Wednesday (we could of had Tuesday if we wanted). The report was with us on Thursday which is brillianty written out to explain the readings for people who are not "experts". Would highly recommend using EMF Inspections Ltd to anyone. Thank you again!
