This course is specifically designed to compliment the new RSI online customizable RF safety plan. Participants taking the class, and utilizing a RF plan, will be well on their way to designing and developing an RF Safety Program (RFSP). OSHA requires a comprehensive RF program, to include training. Through RSI’s BMP live course, and the easy to formulate customized online RF safety plan, attendees will be armed with the tools necessary to achieve the complete program! This course meets all requirements for RF safety certification; and by attending, participants will be able to immediately begin utilizing the information to develop their programs.
“Extensive knowledge & real-world experience was excellent.” Rigs, Comm Tech for BLM - Roswell
"RF Safety"™ follows recommendations for RF safety training specific to State OSHA requirements including NC, MI, and is updated with other new state standards as they are released. This course also meets the RF training requirements for AT&T, Verizon, Bechtel, Black & Veatch and most other major carriers and contracting organizations.
The half day course focuses on FCC and OSHA requirements, as RSI’s original Site Safety Awareness® course has done in the past, but it also goes in-depth on third party liability to the general public. This liability is shared by all on site to include the transmitter licensee and the site management organization. The site management group could be a condo association, a school, a church, a building management group, a city or county municipality, or simply an individual but the liability for the general public is the same. This liability is becoming ever so important as the ambient RF environment continues to grow.
RSI uses real world examples and experiences to bring these issues into focus with appropriate work practices for the student's understanding. Radiofrequency Safety International’s “RF Safety”™ training is recommended in order to understand FCC and OSHA requirements and learn how to be safe regarding radiofrequency radiation and other safety issues. Attendees in this class include individuals from OSHA to major carriers and contractors; State and federal municipalities to corporate and individual site management groups. If you can think of a sector within in Telecom, they have probably attended an RSI course.
