Course Description

RF Safety Training Course by Tonex. Naturally occurring radio waves are emitted by lightning and astronomical objects. Radio waves are generated artificially by transmitters and received by radio receivers, using antennas. Radio waves are very widely used in modern technology for fixed and mobile radio communication, broadcasting, radar and radio navigation systems, communications satellites, wireless computer networks and many other applications. The downside of radio frequencies is RF radiation. Radio frequency electromagnetic radiation (EMR) is the transfer of energy by radio waves. RF EMR lies in the frequency range between 3 kilohertz (kHz) to 300 gigahertz (GHz). RF EMR is non-ionizing radiation, meaning that it has insufficient energy to break chemical bonds or remove electrons (ionization).

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the basic principles of radiofrequency (RF) radiation.
  • Identify sources of RF radiation in the workplace.
  • Recognize potential health hazards associated with RF exposure.
  • Learn safety measures and protocols to minimize RF exposure.
  • Know how to use personal protective equipment (PPE) effectively in RF environments.
  • Understand relevant regulations and guidelines regarding RF safety.
  • Be able to assess and mitigate RF hazards in different scenarios.
