Occupational safety

Although the exposure to high frequency electromagnetic fields is relatively low for the general public, there are certain working environments where exposure is high, for example, applications in medicine, equipment for warming and connecting of materials in industry, as well as repair or maintenance of technical installations during operation.

The German Ordinance on Occupational Safety to electromagnetic fields (EMFV), the pertinent European Union (EU) Council Directive, the Employers’ Liability Insurance Association Regulations, and other provisions are applied to protect employees against potential damage to their health.
