Pacemakers For individuals with pacemakers it must be demonstrated that they are not likely to suffer any significant symptoms related to the pacemaker. In addition, it must be demonstrated that their pacemaker is not likely to be adversely affected by electromagnetic energy likely to be encountered. Therefore the examining doctor must have:

  • A written assessment from the employer/operator detailing the strength of any magnetic field and circumstances with which the individual may come into contact


  • A written statement from either the cardiologist or the technical representative of the pacemaker manufacturer detailing the risks of exposure to the magnetic field in the circumstances in which it may be encountered


  • A cardiologist’s report confirming that the individual is free of syncope or pre-syncope as a result of the pacemaker insertion
