Greenville, NC (PRWEB) September 15, 2011
Two RF safety experts from LBA Group, Inc. have been invited to teach radio frequency safety to company executives in a special five-day tower construction class in Texas. The class is the latest RF safety awareness offering from LBA, which has expanded its RF safety services in response to the proliferation of wireless transmission structures across the country.
Class sponsor ComTrain—which provides safety training for the vertical structure construction industry—sought the expertise of LBA. ComTrain’s “Basic Tower Construction Class” is Sept. 19-23 at its headquarters in Austin.
For class participants, LBA will present a half-day course on “RF Safety Management.” Its presenters will be Mike Britner, vice president of sales for LBA Group, Inc., and Chris Horne, LBA’s chief technical officer. Other presenters at the event include representatives of Rohn Towers, Andrew Telecommunications, and Anritsu.
Besides explaining to company managers the hazards of excessive radio frequency exposure and OSHA compliance standards, the LBA representatives will provide insight on creating a safety plan and setting up policies to implement it. 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. He noted that the half-day RF safety awareness seminar is available to any company needing it,and is online for group and individual training (http://www.lbagroup.com/associates/rftraining.php).
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, and of two industry best practices groups—Carolinas Wireless Association and the Wireless Communications Association International.
