TUC advice on a class 2B carcinogen

On 31st May 2011, the WHO classified RF radiation emitted from wireless devices as a class 2B carcinogen.

The Trades Union Congress in the UK has a document about carcinogens in the workplace ( http://www.tuc.org.uk/extras/occupationalcancer.pdf ).

This offers guidance for all Trade Unions in the UK. In it they say 'trade unions believe the aim should be to remove all exposure to any known or suspected carcinogen in the workplace.'

'Caution should be used to prevent exposure to substances in Group 2B.'

'The regulations are clear: that the first aim should always be to remove the hazard.'

Management Regulations and COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) lay down clear principles for prevention that must be followed when deciding what to do about a potential hazard. This means the first step must always be, where possible, to remove the hazard altogether ­ removing any cancer-causing hazards from the workplace.'

'There is a legal requirement on employers to only use a carcinogen if there is no reasonable alternative.'
