The only safety folks who come to our lab are the fire dept and fire
extinguisher ppl. No OSHA. I believe Illinois Inst. of Tech. may be
doing research cell phone exposure (several mW?). My exposure was that
10^6 level via very close lighting and may have caused tumor. -Stephen

Are State entities exempt from OSHA? None have come this way.
Curious.=20

=20

exempt from what?

here is a quote from the OSHA website;

=20

There are no specific standards for radiofrequency and microwave
radiation issues. However, this page highlights OSHA standards, standard
interpretations (official interpretation of the standards), other
federal standards and national consensus

=20

.. Cel phone antenna radiation does not have any known negative health
effects.

Some people & groups claim there are (and sell remedies and scare
tactics).

... these antennas are just a few watts!

kw AM & FM transmitters haven't killed anyone (except by lightning or
falling off or over), or caused this much concern.

=20

I know Sweden has taken a pro-active approach to e&m, B, ELF, VLF et al,
but not having any proven or known physical damage relationship (within
10^6 in magnitude), makes it hard to set meaningful low exposure limits.

here is one site with some opinions on this topic;
