Saint Brigid’s National School, is a primary school situated in the centre of Greystones, Co. Wicklow. Our mission is to provide the highest quality education for all our children in a happy, safe and stimulating Christian environment, focusing on their academic, social, personal, moral and spiritual development to help them be the best they can be.


The Health and Safety Authority (HSA) and ComReg carried out separate investigations on the WiFi in the school and both found St Brigid’s to be completely safe and that the WiFi poses no risk to the health of our children and the staff.

We have received two comprehensive reports and written confirmation from both Comreg and the HSA that the WiFi in our school

-is completely safe,

-below the recommended safety guidelines

and consequently poses no health risk to our community.

In summary, the HSA report states the following;

“The report confirms compliance both with the occupational safety requirements of the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work (Electromagnetic Fields) Regulations 2016 and with the more stringent public exposure limits set by the International Commission on Non-lonising Radiation Protection (ICNIRP1). Accordingly I am satisfied to conclude that there is no evidence of risks to health arising from Electromagnetic Field (EMF) sources in the school.”

The ComReg report states;

“The 23 routers were found to be compliant for the purposes of the RED2 and to be otherwise lawfully installed and operated and ComReg, following its assessment, does not consider that any further action is warranted”.
