HS-EMFW (Health and Safety in Electromagnetic Fields in Welding) project aims at avoiding unfulfillment of the stipulated mandatory limit values of the Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) Directive – 2013/35/EU – by European companies. This will be done by developing a harmonized training course of personnel involved in the risk assessment of EMF in industry, focusing not only in large enterprises, but also in SMEs in different European countries, and to create the profile of an Electromagnetic Fields Health and Safety Officer in Welding (EF-HSOW).
This objective will be achieved through the definition of a curriculum and corresponding educational materials for the training of personnel involved in EMF risk assessments based on the Directive and on the creation of a Professional profile for the EF-HSOW.
