EMF and RF Awareness
Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) and Radio Frequency (RF) sometimes referred to RADHAZ is a hazard to workers globally.
It is an employer’s and operator’s responsibility to manage the risk and comply with legislation or guidance set out for example in the EMF Directive 2013/35/EU which has derived from the Physical Agents Directive, The Control of Electromagnetic Fields at Work Regulations 2016, Safety, Health and Welfare at Work (Electromagnetic Fields) Regulations 2016 or ICNIRP .
Training is among a range of measures required to comply with the requirements and guidance that protect workers from harm. The Praxis42 IOSH Approved EMF and RF Awareness course has been developed by EMF and RF experts for a global audience and is used by Vodafone, Ericsson and EE to mention just a few international operators.
The EMF and RF Awareness course from Praxis42 helps managers and employees understand the hazards and risks associated with EMFs in the workplace in an easy to understand interactive experience. The training highlights how EMFs are propagated, the possible health effects and how EMFs can be measured and controlled.

Electromagnetic fields (EMFs) also referred to as Radio Frequency (RF) can be generated both intentionally and unintentionally in a variety of working environments with employees being accidentally exposed to harmful levels of EMFs or RF.
EMFs and RF are used in many industrial processes including induction heating, semiconductor processing and medical diathermy as well as the more well-known examples of telecommunication and broadcast systems. In fact, any equipment that generates an amount of electrical current can produce significant magnetic fields.
The course includes the following:
- Electromagnetic fields
- EMFs and the human body
- Safety guidelines
- Monitoring equipment
