Commercial EMF Surveys

Electromagnetic Fields in the Workplace

Occupational exposure limits in the UK are based upon The Control of Electromagnetic Fields at Work Regulations 2016, which defines lower and upper level exposure limits and action level values for both sensory and health effects. These regulations also state that employing staff who are at “particular risk”, principally meaning those who are pregnant or who have active medical devices, will also impact your obligations as an employer.

An assessment involves mapping your place of work to pinpoint any sources of potential issues. For each issue which is detected, our technicians will work with you to help determine a suggested course of action and resolution.

If any of your staff exceed the exposure limit values or report experiencing adverse health effects, you are legally required to provide appropriate medical surveillance and examination. Obtaining an occupational exposure assessment of electromagnetic fields will therefore ensure that you comply with these regulations while offering you and your employees increased peace of mind and long-term well being.

It’s well established that continual exposure to electromagnetic radiation poses a health risk to individuals. This can include things like nervous or cardiac issues and an increased risk of cancer.

If your place of employment is located near an electrical substation, you may be wondering about your risk of occupational exposure to EMF radiation. If you’re an employer near such an area, it’s important to ensure the health, safety, and compliance of your workplace environment.

Indirect effects can occur below both the sensory and health level limits. Sensory effects occurring between the sensory and health level limits are known to be transient, and the sensory limits may therefore be exceeded under certain circumstances. You may exceed sensory exposure limit values if you do so on a temporary basis, but in all cases, indirect effects must be controlled and your staff must be warned of the possibility of sensory effects occurring.

Exposure levels exceeding the health effects limits can risk peripheral nerve stimulation. EMF levels which create this type of stimulation can be painful and create potential safety hazards, for example to those working at height, but there is no suggestion in the presently available data that they are permanently harmful unless the limits are exceeded by a very high margin. Limits for each of these categories are based upon the most sensitive data available and include a built-in safety margin.

EMF inspections were very prompt. We were able to book a test right away and the inspector called on the day to confirm the time beforehand. The report was detailed and came back within 24 hours. We feel the service was very good.

We are so glad we had EMF Inspections carry out a survey on a property we are buying with an electrical sub station at the end of the garden. The peace of mind it has given represents great value for money for us. It was super easy to arrange and communication was excellent with all our queries prior to booking being answered quickly and fully. We were present at the survey and got an indication immediately that there was nothing to be concerned about which was so reassuring. The written report followed quickly within a few days.

Atanas provided quick and clear responses to our enquiry and was very professional throughout. I had never used a surveyor before and they were very clear about the work and costs so I could make an informed decision and give us peace of mind. We were also very impressed with their turnaround. We are happy to endorse and recommend this company.

EMF Inspections Ltd is one of the most efficient companies I've come across. Atanas responded to my enquiry promptly and I had survey done and clear report sent over to me faster than I expected it. Very satisfied with the speed of communication and the service, and therefore, would recommend the company to anyone who needs a peace of mind over EMF issues.

We have used their services for low frequency EMF survey on a house in Surrey. I was very happy with how knowledgeable and accommodating Atanas was throughout the whole process and would happily recommend their services to my friends and family.

I moved into a new property recently and started having some problems with my sleep. As the electricity meter and consumer unit where situated within the property in a cupboard in the kitchen I started thinking that perhaps this had something to do with it as they could possibly be generating high level of EMF'S. I instructed EMF Inspections Ltd to carry out both a Low and High Frequency Radiation surveys at my property. The lady who carried out the inspection, Donika, was very professional, polite and knowledgable about the subject and after carrying out both inspections reassured me that my home was very safe. She spent time explaining many aspects of how EMF's are generated by appliances,etc and how we can protect ourselves from such EMF's just by simply not standing next to them. She was very thorough and when she left I felt reassured that my sleep problems had nothing to do with EMF's and it was more likely to do with the stress of moving to a new home. I cannot thank her enough for having the peace of mind that I now have.
