EMF Surveys

Does your organisation require an EMF survey to comply with regulatory requirements and limits?

Electromagnetic fields can affect the health of people. To prevent this, EMF legislation, guidance and EMF limits exist. The legislation requires organisations with over five employees to carry out an EMF assessment. Misinformation about EMF is commonplace. Unfortunately, unqualified electromagnetic consultants exist. We can provide quality EMF surveys for almost any application. Our award-winning Chartered Radiation Protection Professionals have the required experience in electromagnetic testing. We tailor our services to meet your requirements, and so we do not carry out EMF surveys for the public. EMFcomp provide bespoke EMF surveys with direct access to our founding team of experts. This makes us the perfect partner for your EMF assessment. Please contact us for more information.

Professional Compliance Assistance You Can Trust

We know that safety is your highest priority. Like you, we believe that no one should be injured or made ill through their work. Exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF) can cause adverse health effects. You are aware that by complying with HS&E legislation, you are investing in your organisation’s culture – both from a legal and moral perspective. There is a statutory responsibility to comply with the Control of Electromagnetic Fields at Work Regulations 2016. You need to know how your employees’ exposure compares with the exposure limits in the EMF Regulations and guidance. Then, at least you have met the minimum legal requirements.

But an electromagnetic site survey is complex. There may be static fields, low frequency electric and magnetic field exposure, intermediate fields, and radiofrequency fields in the area of concern. Each require different EMF test equipment and methods for an EMF workplace. We can help. EMFcomp provide measurement of EMF for almost any exposure situation in a wide range of sectors.

Our chartered electromagnetic field consultants act as independent third parties. We use only the scientific facts related to EMF radiation safety levels. We will always remain impartial in our electromagnetic radiation measurement and recommendations. We work closely with you so you get an in-depth understanding of EMF requirements. E.g., the Control of Electromagnetic Fields at Work Regulations 2016 (CEMFAW), ICNIRP guidelines and EMF standards. This allows you to put in place the correct mitigation measures.

Experience, Confidence, Competence

EMF assessment for compliance with EMF regulations and guidance is an unaccredited sector. So, many unqualified consultants with incorrect equipment and little experience exist. If a low-quality consultant is engaged, the duty and liability under law remain yours.

We provide high quality EMF assessments. Our Managing Director, Dr Richard Findlay, is a Chartered Radiation Protection Professional (CRadP). He is also a Fellow of the SRP and past Chair of the SRP’s EMF & Optical Radiation Safety Committee. He has written over twenty papers on electromagnetic exposure assessment. These were published in the peer-reviewed scientific literature, over the last three decades. EMFcomp is an Affiliate of the SRP and an Alumnus of the European Space Agency BIC. We continue to research improved methods for assessing electromagnetic safety. This ensures that we remain at the forefront of EMF radiation measurement, innovation, and service delivery.

The Cost Of Non-Compliance

Non-compliance with the EMF Regulations can result in employee ill-heath and injury. It can also lead to significant reputational damage and reduced employee morale. Financially, non-compliance causes costs due to sick pay, higher insurance premiums and fines.

Fines are the main punishment for non-compliance. In 2016, the Sentencing Council introduced new guidelines. This resulted in higher penalties for organisations that breach health and safety regulations. The average H&S fine in 2018/19 was £150,000, against a backdrop of £54.5 million worth of fines imposed. These figures do not include legal expenses required if action results in a trial. Regarding legal action, a breach of the EMF regulations risks employees taking action against you. If you have breached health and safety regulations, you may need to make large compensation pay-outs to personnel.

This does not have to happen. EMFcomp have completed hundreds of EMF safety studies in various sectors over the last decade. Following the assessment, we will produce a detailed technical report for you. This will meet your organisation’s legal requirements to comply with the EMF regulations.

In-depth Assessment Reports

Following testing for electromagnetic fields, we provide a comprehensive EMF report. EMFcomp has access to a wide range of services in the EMF sector. This helps clients with any extra requirements following their EMF survey. We connect to an extensive network of vendors and manufacturers. So, we can also assist with quality product and services procurement. Finally, site teams enjoy the in-depth information contained in our detailed assessment reports. This is part of our mission to raise the bar on industry best practice.

Fully Committed & Transparent

We provide quality EMF safety surveys to all sectors, for almost all applications. We assist at any stage in a project to provide a thorough, high quality EMF assessment. Our chartered experts work alongside site teams and third-party contractors. This ensures that our assessments cause minimal disruption to ongoing project delivery.

We are SafeContractor accredited through the Alcumus scheme. We can provide risk assessments and method statements for our EMF surveys on request. We carry out electromagnetic radiation measurements in any workplace, anywhere within the UK. We will endeavour to take EMF measurements where and when it is most convenient for you. We want our clients to have full visibility on our compliance projects. We can provide clients with updates and progress reports as required. If any queries arise regarding our electromagnetic field surveys, we will always answer these promptly and in detail.

Frequently Asked Questions

01Will The Survey Be Suitable for My Particular EMF Exposure Problem?

What is an EMF survey and will it be suitable for our site? It is an assessment of field levels in your facility.  We sweep through areas measuring EMFs, and compare to the relevant limits to assess compliance. Our state-of-the-art, highly accurate measurement equipment is regularly calibrated in internationally accredited labs and can measure EMFs from 0 Hz to 60 GHz. So yes, it will be suitable. The result of the survey is a quality electromagnetic field assessment, whatever the application, or industry sector.

02Who Can Carry Out These CEMFAW Regulation Compliance Assessments?

What is EMF exposure and who can carry out EMF surveys? It is the field an individual is exposed to, and only qualified assessors should be used to complete a CEMFAW compliance survey. The relevant qualification is the Society for Radiological Protection’s (SRP’s) Chartered Radiation Protection Professional (CRadP).

All EMFcomp assessors are Chartered Radiation Protection Professionals and Members of the Society for Radiological Protection. EMFcomp itself is an Affiliate of the Society of Radiological Protection, and an Alumnus of the European Space Agency BIC. We have a huge amount of knowledge and experience in radiation safety, electromagnetic radiation test and EMF regulations, standards, and guidance, having carried out hundreds of electromagnetic field assessments in all sectors.

03What Makes EMFcomp Leaders in EMF Assessment?

The extensive skills, knowledge and experience we have acquired over decades of work in electromagnetic radiation protection. We continue to invest heavily in both equipment and training to further improve the EMF exposure services we offer.

This has resulted in our ability to deliver specialist services to the highest standard. To demonstrate this, we co-wrote the European Commission’s Guide on EMF Safety, ‘The Practical Guide to the EMF Directive’ that forms the basis for assessing compliance with new UK EMF legislation ‘The Control of Electromagnetic Fields at Work Regulations 2016’ (CEMFAW). The advice, measurement, and modelling services that we provide in electromagnetic safety are based on the published scientific research.
