EMF Directive 2013/35/EU Summery Requirements:
- Industry must examine exposure to electromagnetic fields. In particular
- Industry must ensure that limits set by the directive are not exceeded
EMF Directive 2013/35/EU requires employers to assess the risks to employees by assessing and, if necessary, measuring the relevant ELV action levels of non-ionising radiation fields and electromagnetic fields to which employees are exposed.
As part of this risk assessment, employers must also consider any indirect effects, such as interference with medical electronic devices and cardiac pacemakers. Occupational exposure to non-ionising radiation must be kept as low as is reasonably practicable.
Suitable and sufficient electromagnetic risk assessments must be conducted by the employer. The purpose of these is to identify hazards, assess the probability that harm may arise from them and evaluate the effectiveness of control measures.
Currently, legislation places a duty of care on businesses to ensure that workers are not exposed to severe levels of EMR. All our clients are supplied with a multi-layered compliance report, including “Electronic Witness” of the field strengths recorded in “Real-Time” and a (once EMF compliance is proven) "Certificate of Conformity". Clearly “Showcasing” your facilities commitment to safety on the shop-floor while fulfilling all legal EMR obligations.
