If you are thinking of having an EMF Survey, here are some of the most common questions we get asked
Absolutely. This is our main aim – to ensure your full Compliance with the HSE CEMFAW Regs 2016 using the latest & fully compliant high-end EMF meters where required. And, unlike many other general H&S Consultancies, we specialise solely in EMF Assessments and have been since 2016: EMFs are all we do – nothing else…! You can count on our experience, honesty & professionalism.
Fear not! We totally appreciate EMFs & the Regs can be an absolute minefield for the uninitiated, so we take great pride in ensuring our EMF Reports (as well as our EMF discussions) are straightforward & easy-to-understand. Our aim is to make your life as easy as possible when it comes to EMFs. For example, this includes us supplying & affixing the correct EMF warning stickers onto equipment / areas where required as part of your site EMF Survey – it saves you having to source / buy them and avoids any potential confusion etc
It all depends on what types of electrical equipment you have and how much, but rest-assured – we do not over-charge by making unnecessary measurements where they’re not needed. Indeed, some applications don’t need EMF measurements. This is where our free EMF site scoping survey / visit can come in useful – see below
Under the HSE CEMFAW Regs 2016, any Employee deemed “At-Risk” to EMFs ie) those wearing medical implants or expectant mothers, must have a specific Personal EMF Risk Assessment carried-out to ensure their EMF safety in their work environment. Scholes EMF Ltd specialise in such Personal EMF RA’s, crucially using the correct EMF meters where any “At-Risk” EMF measurements of equipment are required. This also includes a full Personal EMF Risk Assessment matrix in the EMF Report, affixing any EMF “At-Risk” warning stickers where needed etc – again, to make your life as simple as possible and to ensure all angles are covered.
Absolutely. We offer a free on-site EMF scoping survey visit where necessary – it’s a great way to determine exactly what EMF measurements are needed, how long an EMF Assessment will take etc to ensure you get a totally accurate and honest quotation. However, if you’re a low-risk site / workplace then a straightforward phone conversation will often suffice to elucidate an EMF Assessment quotation.
