The European ElectroMagnetic Fields Forum (EEMFF) is a pan-european network of national occupational safety and health institutions aiming to enhance the implementation of the EMF Directive (2013/35/EU) in the EU member states. To provide occupational safety and health specialists with a platform to discuss their experiences and to exchange best practice, the EEMFF organised a conference in November 2021, hosted by the Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA), Germany via webex.
To establish a dialogue between European and international occupational safety and health specialists, the conference offered several keynotes supported by poster presentations and in-depth workshops on the most relevant occupational safety and health topics concerning EMF:
More than 90 participants from 29 EU- and non EU-countries contributed to the first EEMFF-conference.
