New services from the Cti environmental team
Control of Electromagnetic Fields at Work Regulations 2016
These regulations transpose The Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) Directive 2013/35/EU into UK law and came into force in July 2016. Companies are required to risk assess the exposures of employees, the general public and those at heightened risk to electromagnetic radiation in the workplace. Where risks are identified, in situ measurements are required to be carried out to assess the levels of exposure against given limits. Cast metal producers have many sources of EMF from furnaces, power supplies, welding, arc air and other equipment The regulations also require training for employees and signage indicating areas of potential exposure.
Cti are able to provide guidance, risk assessment and monitoring of EMF to enable member companies to comply with the regulations.
Breathing Air quality Measurement
For breathing equipment fed from compressed air lines, there is a requirement to test the quality of this air. Cti are able to carry out testing of this equipment in accordance with BSEN 12021:2014
Utilising the latest sound level instrumentation and mapping software, Cti are now able to provide a noise mapping service in addition to the BS4142:2014 Environmental Sound Measurement. This enables companies to determine the noise contours in or around a site to determine areas of potential nuisance of exposure and subsequently, proactive approaches to potential risks.
