EMF Regulations for Industry

All employers within the industrial sector are obliged to comply with EMF legislation in the form of The Control of Electromagnetic Fields at Work Regulations, or CEMFAW. Industrial environments have numerous risks from EMF exposure, 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’. We are leaders in examining compliance with EMF legislation, guidance and limits. Our Managing Director is an active member of the Society for Radiological Protection, chairing their EMF and Optical Radiation Safety Committee. This ensures the latest assessment methods are applied to your EMF survey.

High Field Sources in The Industrial Sector

Sources of strong electromagnetic fields in the industry sector include:

  • Electric welding and melting
  • Power distribution (substations, switchrooms, cables carrying significant currents)
  • Induction heating
  • Magnetisers and demagnetisers
  • Permanent magnets and electromagnets
  • Radiofrequency field (RF) heating
  • Non-destructive Testing (NDT)
  • Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI)
  • Electrical charging equipment
  • Antennas
  • RF plasma (CVD, sputtering)
  • Industrial heating or drying
  • Large motors and pumps

Independent Advice

Our specialists act as an independent third party using the scientific facts related to EMF exposure, and we will always remain impartial in both our EMF surveys and recommendations. We work closely with industrial clients so they obtain an in-depth understanding of EMF regulations, such as the Control of Electromagnetic Fields at Work Regulations 2016 or CEMFAW. This allows clients to implement the correct mitigation measures.

Affiliated Organisation
