The effect of radio transmissions on health has been studied extensively, leading to international standards for network antennas and exposure limits for workers and the public. Despite the ever-growing body of scientific knowledge, many people continue to be concerned about electromagnetic fields (EMFs) and their impact on health.
This course looks at the state of the science, standards for mobile technologies, regulatory compliance and public awareness and education.
• Understand public concerns and the accumulated knowledge about the health effects of EMFs.
• Learn about internationally accepted safety requirements for radio transmissions.
• Learn how to respond to public safety concerns and increase awareness of the science.
