This consultation seeks views on the UK’s proposed approach to implement European Directive 2013/35/EU on the minimum health and safety requirements regarding the exposure of workers to the risks arising from physical agents (electromagnetic fields).
HSE proposes to transpose into law through the Control of Electromagnetic Fields at Work Regulations 2016 only the requirements of the Directive which go beyond, or are more specific than, those covered by existing UK legislation. These Regulations will be supported by guidance that outlines the measures that should be taken to assess exposure to EMFs and manage any of the risks identified.
The consultative document also seeks views on the draft guidance, regulations and impact assessment.
