Good Science in Plain Language

EMF Surveys

Perhaps the most controversial (and most misunderstood) radiation safety issue today is EMF (electromagnetic fields). The Radiation Safety Institute of Canada is at the forefront of this contentious workplace issue.

We have a long and distinguished history of expertise in this area and have conducted numerous workplace surveys for a range of public and private sector clients.

Our EMF survey measures the actual level of EMF and determines the level of radiation exposure within your workplace. The survey includes measurements of EMF emissions from:

  • computer monitors
  • control room equipment
  • telecommunications equipment
  • power supply units and other electrical equipment

We can also assess the general workplace environment for the presence of EMF.

Every workplace assessment includes a detailed report of our findings. The report, written in plain language, includes an educational introduction to the nature of electromagnetic radiation and EMF exposure guidelines, together with detailed survey data, analysis of results, floor plans, etc.

The report also includes recommendations for corrective actions, if required. Contact us today to learn more.
