SPECIAL INFORMATION FOR CULLMAN

If you use cell phones, pay attention to this limits for secure exposure to radiofrequency (RF) energy.

Working closely with federal health and securety agencies, such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the FCC has adopted limits for secure exposure to radiofrequency (RF) energy. These limits are given in terms of a unit referred to as the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR), which is a measure of the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the body when using a mobile phone. The FCC requires cell phone manufacturers to ensure that their phones comply with these objective limits for secure exposure. Any cell phone at or below these SAR levels (that is, any phone legally sold in the U.S.) is a "safe" phone, as measured by these standards. The FCC limit for public exposure from cellular telephones is an SAR level of 1.6 watts per kilogram (1.6 W/kg).

Consumer Publications

SAR Information from individual manufacturers can be found on the below websites:

FCC SAR Database - You can normally find the SAR value of a cellular phone through the FCC database if you can get the FCC ID number from the instrument.

The FCC ID number is normally shown somewhere on the case of the phone or device. In many cases, you will have to remove the battery pack to find the number. Once you have the number proceed as follows. Go to the following Web address:www.fcc.gov/oet/ea/fccid. Once you are there you will see instructions for inserting the FCC ID number. Enter the FCC ID number (in two parts as indicated: "Grantee Code" is comprised of the first three characters, the "Equipment Product Code" is the remainder of the FCC ID). Then click on "Start Search." The grant of equipment authorization for this particular ID number should appear. The tallest SAR values reported in the equipment certification test data are normally included in the comments section of the grant of equipment certification.

Additional information on Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) can be found on

Employees of state and local government Employees who work for state and local governments are not covered by the federal OSHA, but have protection under the OSHA law if they work in states that have a state program approved by OSHA. Four states and a territory of the USA. UU. have OSHA-approved plans that cover only public sector employees. These include: Connecticut, Illinois, New Jersey, New York, and the Virgin Islands. Workers in the private sector in these four states and the Virgin Islands are covered by federal OSHA.
