EMF Regulations and Guidance

Organisations within the energy sector are required to comply with EMF legislation, the Control of Electromagnetic Fields at Work Regulations, or CEMFAW. Power stations and substations will 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 (SRP). Dr Richard Findlay is a Fellow of the SRP, a Chartered Radiation Protection Professional and Chair of the SRP EMF and Optical Radiation Safety Committee.

Wide-ranging Experience

We have previously successfully delivered EMF assessment projects for nuclear power stations, gas-fired power stations, and other power generation facilities using renewable sources such as wind turbines and landfill. We have measured fields within numerous substations large and small, alongside converter stations and biomass power stations. Our award-winning EMF experts and consultants work promptly and professionally when reviewing electromagnetic exposure safety measures during EMF surveys. We are always sensitive to the needs of organisations and employees, especially with regards to safeguarding ‘workers at particular risk’. These are employees that may be more susceptible to electromagnetic fields and include pacemaker/ defibrillator wearers, workers with metal implants such as plates, screws and rods, and pregnant employees.

High Field Sources in The Energy Sector

Sources of strong electromagnetic fields in the energy sector include:

  • Substations
  • Switchrooms
  • High power electrical cables
  • Overhead power lines
  • Inverters
  • Rectifiers
  • Electrical transformers
