Arizona and several other states have an occupational exposure standard for radiofrequency radiation sources. The standard, and requirements for the registration and survey of RF emitting sources are buried in an obscurely worded section of the radiation control regulations. At the completion of the class, safety managers should understand the RF radiation hazards and the specific requirements under the existing statutes for the management of radiating sources. The next class is on January 26, 2023 from 9 AM to 1 PM and is offered via Zoom. Please contact the office at (480) 897-9459 or complete the form on the class page to sign up. Handouts and tests will be emailed to you.
The class covers the following topics:
The electromagnetic spectrum
Characteristics of RF radiations
Units used to measure non-ionizing radiations
Calculation of radiated fields based on transmitter power and antenna gain
Review of the frequency dependent exposure standards
Measurement tools for RF radiations
Examples of hazard evaluations using calculations and measurements.
The class is available in-person and online via Zoom or Microsoft Teams. For more information see this page.
