An EMF (electromagnetic fields) safety survey may be required for a number of reasons.
Usually equipment that generates EMF, either intentionally or as a bi-product, has been installed (or modified) in an area that people, either employees or the general public, can access. Despite media interest mobile telephones and base stations are far from being the only source of EMF energy in the workplace. Many industries use various pieces of equipment that generate high EMF e.g. 27 MHz heat sealers, induction heaters, resistance welders, sputtereing equipment, microwave heating and drying equipment etc. Plus more obvious sources such as broadcast and radar systems.
If there is any concern over risk of exposure the next step is to ascertain if an assessment can be performed by obtaining information from the equipment manufacturer, calculation or if measurements are required.
With answers to a few simple questions we can advise if a measurement survey is a sensible course of action. Questions such as how much power is available from the system, exposure duration, frequency of operation and how close can people get to the source give a quick guide to the level of hazard.
Making sense of EMF safety regulations & guidelines
Whether seeking compliance with ICNIRP or CEMFAW 2016 / EMF Directive 2013/35/EU it is easy for the uninitiated to become bogged down in relatively technical documents. We pride ourselves in explaining technical issues in simple terms.
Using the right equipment
It is in an interesting anomaly that we have acceptable exposure levels e.g. ICNIRP reference levels or CEMFAW / EMF Directive Action Levels yet there is often little thought given to the measurement equipment that is used to assess compliance. As a result measurements are often performed with entirely inappropriate equipment at best giving rise to large measurement uncertainty or completely unknown measurement errors. At Link Microtek we have the equipment and expertise to provide the right answers ensuring you don't spend time and money solving phantom problems.
