WiFi in schools safe – NZ Govt report
Wifi radiofrequency fields in schools do not pose a health risk to children or staff, with exposures many thousands of times lower than the relevant standard, according to a new report from the Ministry of Health.
The report, Snapshot Study: WiFi in Schools, was released by the Ministry on Thursday, and presents the results of measurements of exposures to radiofrequency (RF) fields from WiFi in two New Zealand schools, both from the access points and devices themselves.
“Exposures to WiFi signals in New Zealand schools, both from the access points and devices, are very low,” the report states. “On this basis WiFi in schools does not pose a health risk to children or staff.”
