A national register of RF workers event supported by the Cambridge Wireless Radio Technology SIG which will review the current knowledge of RF safety.

This year’s National Register of RF Workers Annual Meeting is being held in collaboration with Cambridge Wireless Radio Technology SIG and will be hosted at the University of Birmingham on the 20th June.

The meeting will be focussing on the implications of RF Safety both for the workforce and the general public. We have a range of guest speakers from the RF industry who will describe the recognition and the management of RF hazards in the workplace and the training and contingency methods they use. We will address the perceptions of risk amongst employees and the general public and have industry experts speaking on the implementation of the CEMFAW regulations, the measurement of RF fields and the challenges presented by 5G.  

Who is it for? The meeting will be of interest to senior management, designers and users of RF equipment, health, safety and environment professionals in companies where staff exposure to RF can exceed public guidelines. It will be particularly useful for all those who seek further clarity and guidance on the impact of working with RF.

What will I get out of this? Those attending will gain a better understanding of the potential and perceived risk of RF, the practical issues of measuring RF in the workplace - how it might be managed and mitigated, and the implications of 5G. There will be the chance to network with colleagues from across the industry and the opportunity for those attending to discuss specific points with our presenters.

Please note this event will operate under the Chatham House Rule (See https://www.chathamhouse.org/chatham-house-rule)

There is a small registration fee of £20 plus VAT to attend. Please note there is limited capacity at this event so early registration is advised.
