"According to RF Safe, Hawaii could be first state to require by law that consumers are made aware of potentially dangerous cell phone radiation emissions from wireless devices with cell phone radiation warning labels."
"To raise awareness of cell phone radiation, D-Sen. Josh Green of Kona, Ka'u introduced Senate Bill SB 2571, a measure calling for cell phones sold in Hawaii to come with a prominent health warning -- similar to what smokers see on the sides of cigarette packages to warn them of danger.
"Sen. Green not only wants people to think about that electromagnetic radiation but also to change their cell phone habits because of it.
"Green, who chairs the Health Committee, said he introduced the bill because he thinks consumers need to be directed to radiation warnings already listed within the device.
"The original version of Senate Bill SB 2571 would have required the label to read, "This device emits electromagnetic radiation, exposure to which may cause brain cancer. Users, especially children and pregnant women, should keep this device away from the head and body."
"Green said he took the language from the warning within his iPhone. He said he is open to the size of the label being reduced. In it's current form, Senate Bill SB 2571 would require cellphones sold in Hawaii to contain a warning label covering nearly a third of the back of the device. . . .

"There's basically a lithium-ion type rechargeable battery built in (to an iPhone). The battery, as it charges and discharges, it's really a chemical reaction that can generate heat," Rosenstein said. "It's very rare there can be an issue, but any battery is just a chemical composition that can be flammable in extreme circumstances."
"Rosenstein said his business uses a fireproof box to store batteries from devices that are being repaired, so fire cannot spread if they somehow ignite.
"There have been sporadic reports of phone fires, though typically the phones that caught fire were being charged.
"The most notable malfunctions of lithium ion batteries were aboard two 787 Boeing Dreamliners, causing fires that led to the grounding of the aircraft. "Rosenstein couldn't say what would have caused the battery in the eighth-grader's phone to burn. He said there's nothing else in the phone that could cause a fire.
"These batteries installed in Apple products in particular are extremely safe. It's an extremely rare incident," he said. . . .

"The principal of vicarious liability states that an employer is responsible for the harm caused by its employees if the employees are acting within the scope of their employment at the time an accident happened.
"Employers are facing increasing liability as a direct result from their employees' cell phone use. So why is this the next legal frontier? The number of lawsuits involving employer liability for traffic accidents caused by employee cell phone usage is steadily growing, as well as lawsuits based on health problems associated with cell phone use. . . .
