The management of EMF safety presents some special challenges. Standards and regulations governing EMF safety are typically long and technically complex, are sometimes open to interpretation, and are usually well outside the expertise of an organisation’s core business. Moreover, the effort to get up to speed on this confusing hazard is often well out of proportion to the scale of physical risk, drawing WHS resources away from less exotic but more important dangers such as slips, trips and falls.

Two Fields Consulting can help you fast track your approach to managing EMF safety which meets your WHS obligations in an appropriate and cost effective manner. We stay abreast of new developments through our research and standards activities and can draw on our large network of associates and expert colleagues in this field.
