About the course
The Control of Electromagnetic Fields at Work Regulations 2016 placed specific requirements on employers to provide appropriate training for EMF Workers. The Regulations also list what should be included in such training so it’s important to get it right (and many don’t).
However good EMF safety training doesn’t just go through a tick box series of deliverables. Because EMF safety is a niche technical subject it’s important that training addresses risk perception i.e. many workers worry unduly about a subject they don’t fully understand and with so much misinformation surrounding subjects like 5G it's important to know the facts. Rather than just treating EMF safety awareness training as a rubber stamp exercise make sure it provides your organisation with as many benefits as possible.
Make sure workers know enough to follow a sensible course of action regarding EMF safety that will save time and money, for telecoms companies it will mean you won’t have unnecessary stoppages just because climbers and rooftop workers can't recognise a personal monitor false alarm. We provide the necessary information to perform a dynamic EMF risk assessment, information on typical hazards and how to properly use a personal monitor.
Our EMF safety awareness training takes about 3 hours to complete and can be online, performed at client premises or our site in Basingstoke. It’s suitable for workers in defence, satcom, telecommunications and broadcast industries but can be adapted for any specific application.
