RF Safety Applications

 

The RF safety issues presented by rooftops with wireless antennas, towers with FM radio and TV antennas, semiconductor production facilities, heat sealers, satellite communications, construction sites located near AM radio stations, and complex military radar facilities are all very different. RF Safety Solutions will properly address your situation.

RF Safety Solutions provides honest, easy-to-understand solutions. A simple call to Richard Strickland will help you gain an understanding of your situation. There is no cost for this type of advice. The solution might be as simple as an easy-to-read letter documenting his advice. If a simple analysis and short letter report is needed, that report is written for you and is specific to your situation—it is not a form letter with fill-in-the-blank answers.

A simple letter report is often enough to satisfy your needs. Why pay for an expensive RF survey and report when a simple analysis and letter report can prove beyond any doubt that your site falls within federal RF safety guidelines? If you need more than that, Richard will give you options. The goal is to provide all the answers that you need at the lowest cost.

The RF Safety LiveCast™ courses taught by Richard Strickland are an extremely effective way to train people in a way that is similar to on-site training but at a fraction of the cost. If you have personnel in more than one location, they can all be taught at the same time. And when you have an industry-recognized expert teaching a course that engages students and gets them to interact with both the instructor and each other, they learn. But if you need something hands-on, such as you would need to learn how to make measurements, or would like an educational and entertaining instructor at a meeting, Richard can provide what few others can.

 

 

Richard Russell Strickland, 72, of St. James, North Carolina, passed away on September 23, 2018.

A son of the late Russell and Gertrude Guerette Strickland, Richard was born on April 25, 1946, in Fall River, MA. He was a proud veteran of the U.S. Coast Guard and served in the Pacific during the Vietnam War. While a young married working parent, he went to school at night, earning his bachelor's degree in mathematics and physics from the University of Massachusetts–Bridgewater. He also went on to earn his M.B.A. from the University of Massachusetts–Dartmouth. After years of working for several companies, he rose to international director of marketing, which fit with his love of travel and keen mind. In 2003, he founded his own business, RF Safety Solutions, which provided consultation and training in radio frequency safety. According to colleagues, Richard was recognized as a person of technical stature in the RF hazards community.

He and his wife were avid cruisers of Europe, Alaska, the Caribbean, and even Tahiti to South America, and he looked forward to adding countries to the more than 70 he had already visited. Richard was also a master craftsman and woodworker, building beautiful cabinetry and furniture of his own designs. In later years, he was an amateur photographer who took beautiful landscape and wildlife photos.

Left to cherish his memory is his loving wife of 51 years, Claudia; daughters, Tara Strickland of Plainsboro, NJ, Kristen Gilbert of Ft. Worth, TX; a sister, Carolyn Duprey and husband James of West Warwick, RI; and his beloved dogs, Jake and Brandi.

No local services are planned at this time. Should friends desire, memorial contributions may be sent to Adopt an ANGEL in Wilmington or St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

RF Safety Solutions is accepting no new business.

Worried about antennas on your building’s roof? Concerned about the effects of a nearby AM radio station? Need to ensure the safety of employees and contractors working on your own site? RF Safety Solutions is your solution for each of these problems and more.

RF Safety Solutions is a safety management and scientific consulting firm focused on radio frequency (RF) safety. Whether your main concern is personnel safety, regulatory compliance, or reduction of liability and risk, RF Safety Solutions can help you. RF Safety Solutions has experience and knowledge that goes far beyond the wireless industry. The standards and regulations can be confusing—we can help you make sense of them and make sure you’re safe and compliant.

How Do We Assess Your Site?
RF environments may sometimes be assessed simply through a review of site photographs and a modest amount of information about the antennas on site. In those cases, as little as 3 to 6 hours work will give you all the answers you need.

A simple letter report featuring computer modeling, which provides colored diagrams showing field strengths, is the next step up. This is often more than adequate for many sites.

When required, onsite measurements are used to generate a comprehensive, yet easily-understood, report featuring an executive summary and the site-specific details of the personnel safety and regulatory issues involved.

How Do We Keep Your Employees Safe?
Once the environment has been assessed, it is important to consider your employees and their work environment. RF Safety Solutions can train your personnel, either on site or live via the Internet using the technique pioneered for the industry in 2004—RF Safety LiveCast™. This approach is extremely cost-effective. Customers can be located anywhere in the world or even at multiple locations and trained simultaneously. Training is designed to fit the customer and the work environment.

RF Safety Solutions can also help you set up an appropriate RF safety program. This can range from a very simple, short document to a corporate-wide safety program like those we have developed for Fortune 500 companies.
