EMF TESTING & ASSESSMENT

What is EMF?

ElectroMagnetic Fields are emitted from electrical equipment when current flows through the equipment.  The greater the current, the stringer the magnetic field.  An electric field will exist often when there is no current flowing. 

What is EMF Testing?

EMF testing is the process of monitoring the EMF

being emitted from plant electrical equipment

which includes:

  • Motors

  • Switch Gear / MCCs

  • Welders

  • Industrial Magnets

  • Machining Centers

  • Plant / In-Car Shortwave Radio Systems

  • Electric Charging Systems

The Importance of EMF Testing - Keep Employees Safe

Protecting the health of your employees is of the most utmost importance.  The industrial work environment often filled with equipment that has the potential of emitting EMF which could interfere with ICDs. 

EMF Testing Methodology

Our trained technicians can perform a site survey of your entire

facility or a specifically targeted area of the plant.  This methodology

provides flexibility in managing time and expenses.

Testing Results and Deliverables

The report will provide in plain English the results of each workplace assessment.  It will also provide knowledge for the employee and you the employer to understand the best means of maintaining a safe and healthy workplace environment. And of most importance, provide data to medical professionals to guide them in their recommendations.

A comprehensive written report containing:

  • Standards in performing and analyzing data

  • List of potential EMF areas of concern

  • EMF survey data tables and interpretation of data

  • Photographs of areas/equipment of concern

  • Recommended corrective actions for areas of concern that allow for reasonable and cost-effective resolution

Whose Responsibility is it?

As an HR or safety professional, you understand the importance of creating a safe

and friendly work environment, from increasing commitment in workers and

FAQ

First, Terminology. 

Throughout this site, we make use of the terms EMF and EMI. Unfortunately, in common use, these terms are used interchangeably; but it is important to understand that they are not identical. We offer the following clarification, in common terminology.

 

EMF is defined as either “Electromagnetic Field” or “Electric and Magnetic Fields”. EMF is, under either definition, a thing, an agent, or a force.

 

EMI is defined as “Electromagnetic Interference”.  EMI is the result of an electric or magnetic field acting on a device, causing it to malfunction.  It is this interference that affects the proper functioning of a device.  EMI is a broad term that covers all interference from all frequencies in the electromagnetic spectrum

 

ICD - an "Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillator" or "Automated Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator" is a device implantable inside the body, able to perform cardioversion, defibrillation, and pacing of the heart. The device is therefore capable of correcting most life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias.

 

Pacemaker - A pacemaker is a small device that's implanted in the chest or abdomen to help control abnormal heart rhythms. This device uses electrical pulses to prompt the heart to beat at a normal rate. Pacemakers are used to treat arrhythmias (ah-RITH-me-ahs). Arrhythmias are problems with the rate or rhythm of the heartbeat.

 

ELF is defined as "Electromagnetic Radiation" (radio waves) with frequencies from 3 to 30 Hz, and corresponding wavelengths of 100,000 to 10,000 kilometers, respectively.
