Get the Safe Work Practices You Need to Protect Yourself from RF Radiation

November 22, 2019

Safe work practices can be the difference between completing mechanical service work near cellular and telecommunications antennas without incident, and being overexposed to Radio Frequency (RF) Radiation. The MCAA/MSCA Guide to Radio Frequency (RF) Radiation Safety for Mechanical Service will help you avoid the latter.

Inside, you’ll find information about:

  • The hazards associated with RF radiation exposure
  • The health effects posed by these hazards
  • How to avoid overexposure

The guide also includes a checklist for assessing work areas to determine whether RF radiation exposure is a concern, and a handy visual guide to help identify RF emitting antennas and related items.

By using these tools and educating your service technicians, you can ensure that they have what they need to remain safe when RF radiation is present.
