LBA Experts Teach RF Safety to Tower Professionals
Two RF safety experts from LBA Group, Inc. will teach radio frequency safety to company managers in a class in Texas. The class sponsor is ComTrain, which provides safety training for the vertical structure construction industry. It sought LBA’s expertise.
“Basic Tower Construction Class” is Sept. 19-23 at ComTrain headquarters in Austin.
LBA will present a half-day course on “RF Safety Management.” Presenters will be Mike Britner, VP of Sales for LBA Group, Inc., and Chris Horne, LBA’s chief technical officer. Other presenters at the event include representatives of Rohn, Andrew, and Anritsu.
The LBA representatives will explain to company managers the hazards of excessive radio frequency exposure and OSHA compliance standards. They also will provide insight on creating a safety plan and setting up policies to implement it.
The half-day RF safety awareness seminar is available to any company needing it, and is online for group and individual training (http://devlbagroup.com/associates/rftraining.php). The class is the latest RF safety offering from LBA, which has expanded its safety awareness program in response to the proliferation of wireless transmission structures across the country. LBA Group has provided RF services to the wireless industry since 1963.
“We’re pleased to add our knowledge to that of other industry professionals at the ComTrain event. Companies that raise the awareness of managers to the hazards of excessive RF exposure are far less apt to expose their employees to danger,” says LBA Group CEO Lawrence Behr.
LBA Group is an active member of the National Association of Tower Erectors, which is an advocate of safety for tower erection and maintenance personnel. LBA also works closely with two industry best practices groups—Carolinas Wireless Association and the Wireless Communications Association International.
