Organised by IPEM's Ultrasound & Non-Ionising Radiation Special Interest Group The Control of Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) at Work regulations (EMF regulations) came into force in the UK on 1st July 2016 following the publication of the 2013/35/EU European Directive in 2013. These regulations require employers to assess the risks posed to staff and others from sources of electromagnetic fields (EMF) in the workplace. The European Union has also published a practical guide to the implementation of the EMF regulations in two, large, but comprehensive guides that also include practical examples.Employers in the Healthcare sector should now have had the opportunity to review the impact of the regulations, assess the information in the practical guides and put a plan in place to ensure that their organisation demonstrates compliance.This meeting should provide attendees with opportunities to:Listen and put questions to experts on how to assess the risks from Electromagnetic fieldsLearn how colleagues in the Healthcare sector have been raising awareness, implementing the EMF regulations and where appropriate utilising the subtle aspects of the derogations.Learning Outcomes1.
