This standard contains the German version of the European Standard EN 50499:2008 with requirements for the assessment of workplaces with regard to the safety of persons in electromagnetic fields in the frequency range 0 Hz to 300 GHz. The standard serves to the implementation of the European Workers Directive 2004/40/EC. The relevant workplaces are divided in uncritical workplaces, which do not need a further assessment due to the presence of equipment with limited field radiation, and in such workplaces, which need a further assessment. The methods for the assessment are specified in this standard. Furthermore informations for the documentation of the risk assessment are given.
