Safety and health at work


The concept of safety at work includes a number of preventive measures aimed at the protection of workers in situations of risk and health protection from injury or accidents, occupational diseases and exposure to physical agents, including the electromagnetic fields.

Although most of the sources of electromagnetic fields, present both in a domestic environment and at work, produce non-risky levels of exposure, some of the most intense manmade electromagnetic sources are located right in the workplace.

The physiological effects of electromagnetic fields on the human body depend first and foremost on the frequency, Since different frequencies interact in different ways with the body: exceeded certain levels of exposure and intensity, the low frequencies can cause stimulation of nerves and muscles, While high frequencies may cause heating of biological tissues.
It is in any case about short-term effects, for now there are no concrete evidence of long term effects.

Safety managers

The risks of exposure to electromagnetic fields are often derived from the use of equipment, that for their lack of manoeuvrability and low diffusion are not subject to strict market controls.Safety at work
The safety managers within companies are responsible for detecting related issues and are then in charge of their resolution.

The safety manager is often a professional who possesses the knowledge and skills to organize and manage all aspects of prevention and protection of workers in the enterprise.
He also inform workers about potential risks present in the workplace, surge implemented measures as well as on any Personal protective equipment to implement, in order to safeguard their mental and physical health.

The safety manager is therefore a very important role within the company, Since it is able to detect problems, risks and dangers and activate the necessary procedures to ensure the safety.

More and more safety managers are turning to experts for evaluation of risks of exposure to electromagnetic fields, as to implement the appropriate protective measures and ensure the safety of workers.

With many years of experience in human exposure, SICOM is able to assess the risks of exposure to electromagnetic fields of different equipment: small devices such as radio transmitters used close to the body offering targeted testing, and large as industrial machineries, providing on-site testing service.
