The Radiation Safety Commitee has concluded that the wireless networks present at Buffalo State College do not present a hazard to persons working or otherwise spending time in College buildings. This conclusion was based on a review of literature, studies, and the results of radiation surveys associated with wireless networks. The committee's review has found the general consensus of the scientific community is that the level of RF exposure due to wireless networks is so low compared to the many other RF sources in the modern environment that health concerns from Wi-Fi exposure are not an issue. For more detailed information refer to the Wi-Fi position statement issued by the Radiation Safety Committee.
