The Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA) is proud to announce a $350,000 contribution to the World Health Organization’s (WHO) research into the health impacts of radio waves, including those used in mobile telecommunications.
The Australian Radiation and Nuclear Protection Agency (ARPANSA) is proud to welcome Dr Sarah Loughran as the inaugural Director of ARPANSA’s activities under the government’s enhanced Electromagnetic Energy (EME) Program.
From the provision of supplies to hospitals to ensuring that Australia’s radiation safety isn’t compromised, ARPANSA has been playing a part in helping to maintain essential services during the pandemic.
Earlier this year, the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) measured the level of radiofrequency electromagnetic energy (RF EME) the public is exposed to at 59 small cell sites across Australia.
ARPANSA’s Dr Ken Karipidis chaired a committee of the International Commission on Non-Ionising Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) to develop a statement on exposure to non-ionising radiation for cosmetic purposes.
Do you use, or are you exposed to radiation as part of your work? Our new suite of occupational exposure factsheets have been designed to keep you informed about the type of radiation you may be exposed to, any possible health effects and how to adequately protect yourself.
With the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, some members of the public are concerned about the human immune system and whether it can be compromised by wireless telecommunications sources such as 5G.
