5G Wireless technology will require sites that are smaller in size as well as coverage. They will operate at lower powers than sites of earlier designs but will still have a power level capable of exceeding FCC Regulations for human exposure, especially for municipal workers who are required to work aloft.
Workers need to be able to control their exposures, that's what makes them able to access Controlled (or Restricted) environments. An untrained worker is treated the same as the General Public, they are limited to lower exposure levels. In order to protect the municipality and the workers, training is almost always required. Note that exposure can be from any and all sources of RF energy, not just ones using 5G technology.
We have just released our online training program entitled "5G Safety in the City". Our training was designed to provide four basic education benefits:
1. Learn what RF is
2. Learn how to identify emitters and work safely around them
3. Learn what 5G emitters are and why you need to become familiar with them
4. Learn what to do in case of an emergency that involves poles with 5G transmitters installed on them.
We developed this training after working with multiple municipalities and learning what students want to know after training is completed. Combining that information with what the FCC regulations require allowed us to provide an accurate and effective course.
While this is a fee-based training we are offering free evaluation site for municipalities to review it beforehand, that's how confident we are that you will find it worthwhile. We can also offer customized versions as well, just let us know. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to begin your evaluation.
