Abstract:
The new European Physical Agents Electromagnetic fields (EMF) Directive (2013/35/EU),
was published in June 2013 and will come into effect in the UK on 1 July 2016. It requires employers
to limit workers’ exposure to EMFs in the workplace. This report provides a review of the available literature, measurements of the EMF emissions welders may be exposed to during the welding
processes, an understanding of the impact that the EMF Directive may have on welding, a proposal for an EMF emission risk assessment procedure, and guidance on compliance for the welding industry.
