Double Standard for Radiation Protection in the Wireless Workplace

EMR Policy Institute (EMRPI) and IBEW Oppose Alltel / Verizon Wireless (VZW) Merger on Worker Safety Grounds

Last update: 1:25 p.m. EDT Aug. 13, 2008

MARSHFIELD, VT, Aug 13, 2008 (MARKET WIRE via COMTEX) -- EMRPI has filed formal opposition at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to the Alltel / VWZ merger. EMRPI's Petition to Deny asserts that FCC has not addressed the impact of long-term exposure to RF radiation (RFR) on human health as required by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).

All mobile carriers have a non-transferable FCC license requirement to protect workers from RFR harm regardless of employment category. Unlike workers who install and repair mobile phone antennas and are required to be trained and alerted to dangerous RFR levels, third-party workers are left ignorant and defenseless in the wireless workplace. It is possible and likely that job site workers would be in a direct line with the antennas' RF beams and be exposed to RFR at levels 200 times stronger than holding a cell phone to their heads.
