Are you aware of the EMF Directive 2013/35/EU which has derived from the Physical Agents Directive and the ‘The Control of Electromagnetic Fields at Work Regulations 2016’? If you answered ‘no’ then your organisation should consider training among a range of other measures required to comply with the requirements. Appropriate training for employees who may be exposed to EMF’s and their involvement in the risk assessment process is an essential requirement.
Electromagnetic fields (EMF’s) can be generated both intentionally and unintentionally in a variety of working environments with employees being accidentally exposed to harmful levels of EMF’s.
EMF’s are used in many industrial processes including induction heating, semiconductor processing and medical diathermy as well as the more well known examples of telecommunication and broadcast systems. In fact any equipment that generates an amount of electrical current can produce significant magnetic fields.
Aims of the Course
EMF Awareness from Praxis42 aims to help organisations to be fully aware of EMF’s, where they occur, the risks involved, and the permissible exposure levels to employees and others, enabling you to appreciate the hazards and risk and take appropriate action. It will help you in demonstrating that your organisation is compliant with the requirements to protect employees and others from exposure to electromagnetic fields in the workplace.
Who is it for?
The course has been developed by health and safety experts with particular experience working in the area of EMF’s. The result is a high quality training solution that gives managers and employees the awareness to meet their health and safety obligations. The course is for anyone who uses, or may come into contact with EMF’s, as part of their work.
How is it Delivered?
EMF Awareness can be delivered to you online or through your computer network to each individual trainee. We can also provide the course to be integrated into a SCORM compliant LMS. The training can be completed at the employees own pace by ‘book marking’ and recording progress and returning to the training at a later stage. In delivering the training in this way the normal costs of training are reduced whilst still achieving the desired awareness of all aspects of EMF’s in the workplace and compliance with the organisations legal responsibilities that relate to training.
Compliance Record Keeping Easily Solved
An invaluable feature of Praxis42 eLearning modules is our learning management system called the eSP, our eSolutions Platform. This solves the problem of compliance record keeping by recording all training and completion of courses and making these records available for you to view and manage electronically. No more struggling to find training records should you have a visit from the enforcing agency or an audit. Training certificates can be printed by the trainee once the course is completed and the end assessment successfully passed.
The EMF Awareness course from Praxis42 helps managers and employees understand the hazards and risks associated with EMF’s in the workplace in an easy to understand interactive experience. The training highlights how EMF’s are propagated, the possible health effects and how EMF’s can be measured and controlled.
