Non-binding guide to good practice for implementing Directive 2013/35/EU Electromagnetic Fields
Guide for SMEs
The Directive 2013/35/EU lays down the minimum safety requirements regarding the exposure of workers to risks arising from electromagnetic fields (EMF). However, few employers will need to calculate or measure the levels of EMF in their workplace. In most cases the nature of the work carried out is such that risks will be low and this can be established fairly simply. This guide is designed to help you understand how the work you carry out may be affected by the EMF Directive. It is not legally binding and does not provide an interpretation of specific legal requirements that you may have to... comply with. It should therefore be read in conjunction with the EMF Directive, the Framework Directive (89/391/EEC) and relevant national legislation. This guide is designed so that employers who are already compliant will be able to establish the risks quickly. More detailed information, including on exposure assessment and preventive measures, can be found in the comprehensive non-binding guide to good practice for implementing Directive 2013/35/EU.
