Radiation From Telecom Mast Has No Health Implications – NATCOMS Chair

Chairman of National Association of Telecommunications Subscribers (NATCOMS) Adeolu Ogunbanjo, has said that there are no health hazards associated with erecting telecoms mast in residential areas.

Ogunbanjo, On Friday in Lagos, said Electro-Magnetic Frequency (EMF) from telecoms mast is not harmful to humans around the mast.

He stated that the World Health Organisation (WHO) in 2007 had conducted several types of research and concluded that masts erected in residential areas had no negative effect on the health of humans and animals.

Ogunbanjo further called for an increase in the number of telecom masts in the country to enhance the quality of telecommunication networks.

“Everywhere in the world, a mast must be erected, and WHO said the emissions from the mast are not enough to cause any damage and since 2007 there have been no issues.

“The telecoms industry should provide more masts so that the quality of service will be improved for the subscribers to enjoy better services.

“According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), the low intensity of cell site emissions is estimated to be between 0.002 percent and 2 percent of the levels of safe exposure, and is lower than those produced by a radio or TV transmission,” the Chairman said.

The life span of a mast is more than 25 years, provided it is adequately maintained, especially the bolts and knots.

The location of the masts can also determine the life span of the mast.
