Aurora’s Angela Yeadon and Robert Hill joined staff from the healthcare sector and attended the IPEM conference ‘Implementing the EMF Regulations and their relevance to healthcare’ in London on 23rd June. This conference aimed to address many of the challenges that the healthcare sector faces in implementing these Regulations.

Pacemaker wearers are deemed to be employees at particular risk under the EMF Regulations.

Angela provided a presentation on the practical implementation of the EMF Regulations, based on her experiences of working in this field for the last ten years, and had the following to say:

What is clear is that there is a need for organisations in all sectors to address these regulations and put in place measures to ensure that EMF safety is appropriately managed. Employers should understand how they will approach the regulatory requirements for carrying out exposure assessments, and in particular how they will protect employees at particular risk
