Workers especially sensitive to the CEM

Published on: 25/02/2019

The risk assessment must consider specifically to the especially sensitive staff, that it requires of a great protection when dealing with the electromagnetic fields because of possible interferences or specific effects: 

  • Staff with introduced medical devices assets (pacemaker, cochlear implants, neurostimulators...)
  • Staff with introduced medical devices liabilities (plates, screws, staples...)
  • Staff that it takes in its body devices practitioners (insulin pumps...)
  • Pregnant workers

Often the result of this evaluation will coincide with instructions that the medical equipment responsible for the implant has provided to the worker.

When there is an area in which these workers should not access, the employer duty to restrict the access to the same one and to signpost it in a visible way.
