What Are The Risks Associated With EMFs and The Telecoms Sector?

Electromagnetic radiation at high frequencies or radio-frequencies (RF) in the broadcast and telecommunications sectors can be harmful to human health. Electromagnetic fields within this frequency range are produced by antenna arrays. They can cause fatigue, heatstroke and even RF burns under certain conditions. RF fields can also interference with the operation of cardiac devices such as pacemakers and defibrillators.

What Is The Legal Situation With EMF Safety?

Because  of  the  adverse  health  effects  caused  by  exposure  to  radio-frequency  fields,  the  UK  has  introduced  new  legislation, in the form of The  Control  of Electromagnetic  Fields  at  Work  (CEMFAW)  Regulations  2016,  that  places  a  responsibility  on  employers  to  assess  and,  if  necessary,  limit  their workers exposure to this electromagnetic fields.

Failure to comply with this new legislation can lead to problems in the workplace and ultimately enforcement action.

Who Can Carry Out These EMF Safety Assessments?

The  EMF  Directive  2013/35/EU,  on  which  CEMFAW  2016  is  based  upon,  states  that  electromagnetic  radiation  assessments,  measurements  and calculations  should  be  planned  and  carried  out  by  competent  persons  at  regular  intervals.  The  radiation  specialists  at  EMFcomp  Limited  can assess your  employees’  electromagnetic  radiation  exposure  and  achieve  compliance with  the  relevant  regulations. This  allows your  company  to continue with its core work in the broadcast or telecoms sector whilst complying with this latest health and safety legislation.

We  are  the  UK’s  premium  EMF  Safety  Specialists.  EMFcomp  Limited  has  a  large    amount  of  knowledge  and  experience  in  radiation  safety  and  the new  EMF  Regs.  Our  award-winning  services  are  able  to  decipher  the  details  within  EMF  legislation  and  present  them  in  easy  to  understand language. This  enables you  to  understand  the  issues  clearly  and  accurately assess the risks from radiation exposure and steps required to achieve compliance with the EMF Regulations.

We  Have  Worked  With:  European  Commission  •  BBC  •  IAEA  •  Public  Health  England  •  National  Grid  •  BT  •  Senator  •  EE  •  Mitsubishi • Royal Society of Canada • EDF Energy • Selex • AT&T • WSP • AECOM • SGS • Siemens • Glasgow Airport • MWF

EMFcomp’s  experts  have  a large amount of  experience in  radiation  safety,  allowing  us  to  provide  you  with  authoritative  radiation protection  advice  and  services.  We  recently  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 latest scientific research.
