The BIR’s MR Safety Working Party has developed generic risk assessments to help employers assess exposure to electromagnetic fields and then assess the resulting risks to their staff. These will need to be adapted to suit local circumstances, and some contain options which individual MRI facilities will need to choose between. The MR Safety Working Party includes representatives from BIR, IPEM, RCR, SCoR, BARMMR, ISMRM, as well as representatives from HSE, MHRA and PHE.
