Introduction to environmental testing
Most of electromagnetic waves in the environment have artificial origin and are related to different electric and electronic technologies. Tecnolab del Lago Maggiore Srl verifies their impact in accordance with regulatory requirements.
Environmental testing: measurements of electromagnetic fields
- measurements of electromagnetic fields for the protection of the population: framework Law n. 36/2001 and implementing Decrees of 2003, Council recommendation of 12/07/1999.
- measurements of electromagnetic fields in industrial environment according to the Decree of Law no. 106 of 3/08/2009 (Consolidated Law on Safety) and Directive 2008/46/CE.
Equipment used in the environmental testing
All surveys are carried out with two measurements devices or methods.
- broadband: total range on a given frequency interval.
- narrowband: detailed information on the wave frequency or wave shape.
Measurements are carried out as required by reference technical standards EN 50499, EN 50413, CEI EN 211-4, CEI EN 211-6, CEI EN 211-7, EN 50444, EN 50445, EN 50505, and EN 50519. Advice in case of any possible problem.
Acoustic measurements: Decree of Law no. 195 of 10/04/2006 and Directive 2003/10/CE with regard to the protection of workers from noise exposure. Noise measurements emitted by appliances in accordance with Directive 2000/14/CE.
Which companies is it addressed to
Environmental testing is addressed to any company that expose its workers to electromagnetic fields for production purposes. According to the Decree of Law no. 81/08, the company should ensure a maximum limit of exposure to electromagnetic fields regulated by law. Thanks to these particular tests Tecnolab del Lago Maggiore Srl can develop a mapping of electromagnetic fields to which a worker is subjected during his operating time.
The results allow to verify the compliance with the regulatory requirements.
The results allow to obtain feedbacks on the compliance with the Decree no. 81/08 of the different working environments. In case of negative results, Tecnolab del Lago Maggiore Srl provides a full support for the customer helping him in the modification process necessary to comply with the regulatory requirements.
