Leadership on Electromagnetic Safety

"Worcester could lead the nation in questioning not only whether employees have the right to a safe work environment, or whether the public has the right to access public buildings, but whether or not Americans have the right to live in their own homes, or anywhere at all, due to encroachment by wireless infrastructure, including smart meters. As more Massachusetts residents report harm, including Worcesterites, it is the only moral and ethical choice."

Burke: Leadership on electromagnetic safety

by Patricia Burke, Opinion: metrowestdailynews.com (Framingham, MA), 2 August 2016

The ADA’s Jobs Accommodation Network has issued guidelines for workers reporting sensitivity to electromagnetic exposure. In 2005, the National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS) questioned how to accommodate electro sensitive citizens in federally funded buildings.

The 2005 report states, “For people who are electromagnetically sensitive, the presence of cell phones and towers, portable telephones, computers, fluorescent lighting, unshielded transformers and wiring, battery re-chargers, wireless devices, security and scanning equipment, microwave ovens, electric ranges and numerous other electrical appliances can make a building inaccessible.”

As the Federal Communications Commission overruns the ADA, planned roll-out of the 5G network will result in additional antennas nationwide. Chair Tom Wheeler stated: “Unlike some countries, we do not believe we should spend the next couple of years studying what 5G should be, how it should operate, and how to allocate spectrum. Turning innovators loose is far preferable to expecting committees and regulators to define the future. We won’t wait for the standards to be first developed in the sometimes arduous standards-setting process or in a government-led activity.”

Worcester could lead the nation in questioning not only whether employees have the right to a safe work environment, or whether the public has the right to access public buildings, but whether or not Americans have the right to live in their own homes, or anywhere at all, due to encroachment by wireless infrastructure, including smart meters. As more Massachusetts residents report harm, including Worcesterites, it is the only moral and ethical choice.
