The EMF Directive Explained (1 day)

The aim of the course is to provide an overview of the EMF (Electromagnetic Fields) Directive, which lays down the minimum health and safety requirements for exposure of workers to electromagnetic fields (EMFs).

This long-awaited Directive 2013/35/EU, was implemented in the UK on 1st July 2016 and organisations will need to hold evidence of compliance with its legal requirements. The new Directive, sometimes referred to as the ’Physical Agents Directive’ will replace the never in force 2004/40/EC and complements the older recommendation 1999/519/EC.

The Directive is based on exposure limit values and action levels, which are aimed at preventing adverse health effects. It also includes methods and procedures for managing and measuring the human exposure to EMFs in the work place.
