Concerned about towers? Are mobiles safe?

Mobile phones and base stations (towers) are designed, built and tested to comply with strict science-based standards, which have large safety margins to offer protection to all users, including children.

The Radio National Frequency National Site Archive is a website that provides up to date information about any mobile base station in Australia, including compliance reports in relation to EME (Electromagnetic Energy).

You can simply enter your postcode at and find out about any mobile base station located near you.

The mobile telecommunications industry relies on the World Health Organization (WHO) to independently assess health issues related to mobiles and base stations. The latest WHO assessment says on handsets:

“A large number of studies have been performed over the last two decades to assess whether mobile phones pose a potential health risk. To date, no adverse health effects have been established as being caused by mobile phone use.”

The WHO says on base stations:

Considering the very low exposure levels and research results collected to date, there is no convincing scientific evidence that weak RF signals from base stations and wireless networks cause adverse health effects.”
