• When reading, use a stand or tilt the tablet to reduce the need for you to bend your head forward to read.
• Whenever possible try to place the tablet on a surface rather than holding it. If you are using the on-screen keyboard for extended periods consider using an external keyboard.
• Use a light touch when using the touchscreen it will be more efficient/precise as well as preventing strain on your fingers and wrist.
• When typing or touching the screen regularly have the tablet flat or only slightly angled to ensure your wrists are not in awkward positions.
• If you find you are leaning forwards to view the tablet, enlarge the image or text.
• Keep your screen clean for good visibility and hygiene reasons.
• Regular movement is really important, if you find yourself using a tablet intensively its recommended to take a 10- 15 minute break every hour, stretch your hands, shoulders and neck and look into the distance to relax your eyes.
Specific Absorption Rate of Radio Frequency Signals
Your mobile phone is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and manufactured not to exceed the limits for exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy defined by European standards. These recommendations establish a substantial safety margin for assuring the protection of all persons, regardless of age and health. The exposure recommendations for mobile phones use a measurement unit known as the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR).
The SAR limit for the mobile phones used by the general public is 2.0W/kg averaged over ten grams of tissue. Tests for SAR have been conducted using recommended operating positions with the mobile phone transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested frequency bands. Although the SAR is determined at the highest certified power level, the actual SAR levels of the mobile phone while operating are generally below the maximum SAR value. This is because the phone is designed to operate at multiple power levels so as to use only the power required to reach the network. In general, the closer you are to a base station antenna, the lower the power output. While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various phones and at various positions, they all meet the international protection standards for exposure to radio waves.
To limit exposure to radio waves, it is recommended to reduce the phone call duration or to use a headset. When holding the phone, grip the phone with your fingers and don’t cover the phone with your whole hand. You hand thus acts like a RF shield and the handset boosts the signal to reach the network.
Mobile communications are transforming our lives with the enormous benefits that they provide. Some people would like to learn more about the health and safety aspects of these technologies. The Mobile Manufacturers Forum has recently released a video on the issue and you can download a copy here.
Safe End of Life Disposal – WEEE
