Why is EMF Testing Necessary?
If you are a heart-device patient, you may find your device at risk of interference around high-voltage overhead power lines, radio transmission towers, electric power tools, portable two-way radios, large AC and small DC motors and so on. In the workplace you may request an Electromagnetic Field Interference (EMI) survey (also called a site survey) of your workplace. An EMF testing
consultant can conduct a site survey of your entire work facility or even a single piece of equipment.

Sources of EMI in the workplace
Types of workplace measurements:
- Overhead Power Lines
- Motors (AC and DC)
- Industrial Magnets
- Accessible electric circuits with live current
- Power Frequency: E-field strength
- Static or DC Currents: B-field strength
- Power Frequency and Modulated Magnetic Fields: H-field strength (B-field)
- Radiofrequency or High Frequency: RF-field strength:
- Conducted Electric fields
For medical professionals
As a cardiologist, you need to know about electromagnetic interference (EMI) that can affect your patients’ implanted heart rhythm devices.
- Can employee with an implantable device return to work safely.
- Are restrictions to an employee’s work environment required.
- EMI testing reveals which minor modifications need to be made to satisfy ADA requirements.
