Exposure to Electromagnetic Fields and Radiation

Eurailtest performs tests and measurements to evaluate the exposure to electromagnetics fields and radiation.

Human exposure to electromagnetic fields (lf/hf)

Check that electromagnetic fields occurring in a specific area affect neither the general public nor employees.

Tests objectives :

Measure public and staff exposure to electromagnetic fields

Tests facilities :

  • Electromagnetic field measuring devices (Low frequency and High frequency) – from 5 Hz to 6 GHz
  • Gaussmeter for continuous magnetic field
  • Spectrum analyzer
  • Electric and magnetic field antennas (from 5 Hz to 6 GHz)
  • Measuring systems based on ANFR protocol (French Frequency Agency)

Testing norms :

EN 50492- Basic standard for the in-situ measurement of electromagnetic field strength related to human exposure in the vicinity of base stations

EN 50500- Measurement procedures of magnetic field levels generated by electronic and electrical apparatus in the railway environment with respect to human exposure

Directive 2013/35/EU (employees)-

European Recommendation 1999/519/EC (general public)-

ANFR (French frequency agency) protocol, version 3, Radio/ Communication-

Protection against radiation

Controlling the degree of exposure to ionizing radiation as part of efforts to obviate occupational hazards. Fulfilling the functions of the Radiation Protection Officer (RPO).

Tests objectives :

  • Produce an inventory of the sources of emission at the workplace
  • Assess ionizing radiation risks
  • Conduct the periodical internal checks required by the regulations
  • Organize/supervise the external verifications conducted by an approved authority
  • Contribute to the production of the requisite documents: single reference document, prevention plan, job reference sheets
  • Define and ensure the appropriate dosimetry
  • Define areas subject to the regulations or to the special regulations
  • Define the corresponding individual or collective forms of protection
  • Calculate the doses emitted by the sources of ionizing radiation to include this information in the staff exposure records
  • Train staff and make them aware of the dangers of ionizing radiation
  • Analyse contamination
  • Interact with the Occupational Health & Safety Committee and the departments to broadcast the results of analyses
  • Conduct expert assessments of radiation protection

Tests facilities :

  • Atomtex AT1121 radiation dosimeter (for X-ray and gamma radiation)
  • Contamination meter (for alpha and beta rays)

Testing norms :

NF C74-100-

NF C15-160-
