A training course is available from Link Microtek on the EU directive regarding controlling electromagnetic fields in the workplace.
Link Microtek has set up a new training course covering the requirements of the Control of Electromagnetic Fields at Work (CEMFAW) Regulations 2016, which came into force on 1st July as the transposition of EU 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 (eg 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, Link Microtek is also offering 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.
With its experience in the EMF safety arena, Link Microtek is well placed to provide attendees with the background knowledge they need in order to deal efficiently with the implications of the CEMFAW Regulations for their organisation.
