What should my employer be doing to protect me from EMFs at work?

The Control of Electromagnetic Fields at Work Regulations 2016 require your employer to assess your potential exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMFs) with reference to exposure limits.

However, employers already had to manage the health and safety of their business and control the risks in the workplace under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999.

The majority of employers will not need to take any additional action to reduce the risk from EMFs either because the levels of EMF in the workplace are already at safe levels or because they are already assessing and managing any risk to employees of higher levels of EMFs.
