The EMF Issue
Electromagnetic fields, or EMF, can
be problematic from two perspectives: the concern over potential health
effects from human exposure, and the disruption to sensitive equipment under high field conditions.
Our EMF testing and remediation services can address both issues.
Human Exposure Concerns
Scientific studies in recent years have shown an apparent correlation between exposure to
elevated EMF from electrical power systems and the risk of adverse health effects. The same is true for radio frequency
radiation from broadcast and cell phone towers. Significant controversy now
exists over the degree of risk posed by this exposure, and the mechanisms of interaction by which
electromagnetic fields may influence biological processes.
Confronted with this uncertain risk, many individuals have chosen to take a
cautious approach and limit their exposure where possible. Our services address this environmental health
concern by providing site assessment surveys, remediation, and
building design consultation. We take an objective, information-based approach to this issue in which
clearly defined guidelines have not been established.
Electromagnetic Interference (EMI)
Equipment interference and performance degradation is a commonly encountered
effect. EMI is the terminology usually employed. Sensitive analytical
and research instrumentation are most commonly affected. An array of EMI remediation modalities, including
active cancellation and shielding, are available to counter this problem.
