Commission studying health effects of transmission towers

THE Communications and Multi-media Commission (CMC) has embarked on a study to determine if cellular transmission towers pose a health hazard to the public.

Energy, Telecommunications and Multimedia Deputy Minister Datuk Tan Chai Ho said this in response to the issue that had been highlighted in Chinese dailies in the past weeks.

However, he said telecommunications service providers already had to comply with stringent requirements of two separate authorities before they could set up transmission towers on top of buildings.

One is from the commission and the other is a licence from local authorities.

“It is the effect on people that we are trying to determine although I have read medical reports that said there was no evidence that radiation from the waves were harmful,’’ he added.

“The Telecommunications Department formulated the guidelines for telecommunications providers including location of transmission towers 1988,’’ he added.

Tan was speaking to reporters after opening the new Dijaya Ceil Sdn Bhd’s new building in KIP Industrial Park in Kepong.

He lauded the ceiling plaster manufacturer’s move to continue with expansion plans despite fears of global recession.

“Dijaya’s move will go a long way towards stimulating the industry, market and the economy by providing jobs and increasing earning and spending,’’ he added.
