SBE Sponsors RF Safety Course

The Society of Broadcasting Engineers will present a three-hour online RF Safety Course designed for broadcast station personnel, including chief and assistant chief engineers, transmitter site engineers, ENG and SNG maintenance personnel and managers who need to have an understanding of RF safety issues and regulations.

The course will be offered Sept. 24, 6:30 p.m.-9:45 p.m. EDT. Topics covered include the biological effects of RF radiation and the differences between RF radiation and ionizing radiation, FCC and OSHA regulations, workplace hazards, transmitter sites and more.
