1654 - Guide for RF Protection of Personnel Working in the Vicinity of Wireless Communications Antennas Attached to Electric Power Line Structures

Electric utilities are required to meet the requirements established by applicable regulations [e.g., Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Federal Communications Commission (FCC)] for protection of electrical workers in the vicinity of wireless communication antennas adjacent or attached to electrical power line structures. This guide presents information on establishing an effective safety program to assure compliance with these regulatory requirements, including information on RF exposure limits, power-frequency electric and magnetic field immunity of RFPM, and RF protective clothing.
