EMF Regulations and Guidance

All employers within the construction sector are obliged to comply with EMF legislation, the Control of Electromagnetic Fields at Work Regulations, or CEMFAW. Construction environments can contain EMF hazards, ranging from adverse health effects to standard workers, to interference hazards to workers with cardiac devices such as pacemakers or defibrillators, grouped as ‘workers at particular risk’. Nearby members of the public can also be at risk. We are leaders in examining compliance with EMF legislation, guidance and limits, with our Managing Director being an active member of the Society for Radiological Protection, chairing their EMF and Optical Radiation Safety Committee.

Trusted Advice

We have previously worked on numerous construction projects, where there have been concerns that either nearby electromagnetic fields could affect the project, or the facility under construction could generate EMFs that then have an adverse effect on neighbouring people or electrical equipment. Our experience in these matters give clients confidence that their projects will be fully compliant with the latest EMF regulations and standards, once an EMFcomp assessment is completed. If monitoring or shielding solutions are required, we are also able to advise on devices or materials and assist with procurement, giving clients the benefit of our established network of EMF expertise.

Prompt, Dependable Service

If your company requires a quick turnaround for consultancy services, EMFcomp can accommodate this need. Our EMF specialists have the knowledge and technical skills to meet tight deadlines and fast-paced construction, whilst still delivering EMF assessments of superior quality.
