Yvelines: a man recognized as a victim of a work accident due to his electrosensitivity
europe1.fr, 10 October 2018 – translation : An initial medical assessment had concluded that there was “psychiatric” discomfort caused by “anxiety disorders” unrelated to the work environment.
A man diagnosed with electrosensitivity was found to be a victim of a work accident due to his intolerance to electromagnetic waves by the Yvelines Social Security Affairs Court (Tass). This customer service technician from a telecommunications company was the victim of a malaise on November 6, 2013 at his workplace.
According to his lawyer, François Lafforgue, he had been diagnosed as electrosensitive since 2011 but had been kept in the same position despite the recommendations of the occupational health authorities, who had twice requested his transfer to a “position with little exposure to electromagnetic waves”.
The “causal link between the malaise and work” cannot be excluded.
Electrosensitivity is not recognized as a disease.
