Please Note: You are required to read the Wireless Network Fair Usage and Security Policy on the student contract page. The most common offences are listed below:
The University takes any concern about the alleged health impact of Wi-Fi technology seriously. A range of scientific research undertaken to-date concludes there is no evidence that low-power Wireless Networks pose health threats to users or to the general public. Wi-Fi technology meets all national and international safety requirements and emits signals that are typically hundreds to thousands of times below international safety limits.
The United Kingdom Health Protection Agency does not consider there to be problems with the safety of low-power Wireless Networks.
The World Health Organization has reviewed the various bodies of research that have been conducted and has concluded that, due to the research results and the very low exposure levels associated with Wi-Fi, there is no convincing scientific evidence that the weak radio frequency signals from wireless networks cause adverse health effects. www.who.int/peh-emf/publications/facts/fs304/en/index.html
Different language versions of the above are available here www.who.int/peh-emf/publications/factsheets/en/index.html
If you have any further concerns about the Health and Safety risks of the Wireless Networks in use at the University please contact the Universities Radiation Protection Officer for both ionising and non-ionising radiation:
