CEMFAW Regulations 2016 training course

We've updated our EMF Directive 2013/35/EU trainining course to include the UK specific Control of Electromagnetic Fields at Work (CEMFAW) Regulations 2016, which came into force on 1st July as the transposition of Directive 2013/35/EU into UK law.
Aimed at anyone who has to manage EMF safety in the workplace, the one-day course can be held in-house at Link Microtek, at customers’ premises or at any other location equipped with basic presentation aids.
Course topics include basic principles of electromagnetic energy, the effects of EMFs on the human body, the main provisions of the CEMFAW Regulations, EMF risk assessments, workers at particular risk (e.g. those with active implanted medical devices), exposure limit values and action levels, provisions aimed at avoiding or reducing risks, and real-world case studies.
To complement the CEMFAW Regulations course we also run a half-day EMF safety awareness course for workers in the telecommunications, broadcast, defence, medical, scientific and industrial sectors, which fulfils the regulations’ requirement for EMF worker training. A third course, on EMF safety measurements, is available for those who need to perform measurement-based EMF risk assessments. See the EMF Safety Training page for further information.

The Control of EMF at work regulations 2016

The Control of EMF at work regulations 2016 were published on 23/05/16. They transpose EMF Directive 2013/35/EU into UK legislation and will come into force on 01/07/2016.

The full document can be downloaded here.

Most likely you don't need to do much at all and we will not suggest you need to spend money fixing problems that aren't there but if you have any questions regarding the new UK EMF regulations please don't heistate to contact us. We provide EMF training, EMF measurement services and other consultancy services.

Trade-in special offer

NBM 550 and probe

Until 31st March 2016 we are offering 20% discount on any Narda Safety Test Solutions NBM series meters and probes against a trade-in of any comparable EMF safety measurement equipment e.g. Narda 8600, 8700 or EMR series, PMM 8053, Raham.  Use the contact form or call 01256 355771 so we can arrange a quotation.

EMF directive 2013/35/EU comes into force on July 1st, it requires employers to perform an EMF risk assessment. Whilst risk assessments can be performed by performing calculations or gathering information from equipment manufacturers or trade associations etc.,  sometimes it will be easier to make field strength measurements. With the latest equipment measurements are simple and can easily be undertaken in-house.

The NBM range includes two meters; the NBM-550 which has the capability to perform data logging, include GPS data etc. and the very easy to use and compact NBM-520. A measurement probe is required for the frequency range of interest. For low frequency applications (up to 100 MHz) the NIM 511 & 513 provide electric and magnetic field capability with a single probe for applications like heat sealers/vinyl welders, semiconductor processing, plasma generation etc.
