Radiofrequency (RF) Radiation Awareness Guide


Radiofrequency (RF) radiation, a type of nonionizing radiation, is the energy used to transmit wireless information. At low levels it is not considered a hazard. But at the levels produced by telecommunications equipment, including radio, television, and cellular antennas, RF radiation can pose a health risk for workers. As demand for cellular and wireless services grows, more of these antennas are being placed on rooftops and sides of buildings.
