Rf voltages may be induced in ungrounded metal objects such as wire guys,
wire cables (hawsers), handrails, or ladders. You could receive a shock or rf burn if
you come in contact with these objects. Obtain proper permission prior to going
topside or "working aloft."
Rf burns are usually deep, penetrating, and third degree. They must heal
from the inside out. If you are burned, seek medical attention. A person in an RF
field will usually have a body temperature rise. The eyes and reproductive organs
are especially susceptible to RF energy. Read and heed all warning signs!
