Measurement of Radon in workplaces and premises with Radon detectors
Radon is a radioactive gas, we can’t see, smell or taste it: you need special equipment to detect it. The radon level in the air outside is very low but can be higher inside buildings. Employers are required, as far as reasonably practicable, to ensure the health and safety of employees and other people who have access to their work environment.
Radon should be identified as a hazard if the workplace has one or more of the following circumstances:
We have several types of radon detectors for different applications. We measure radon in homes, workplaces, schools, mines and wherever radon gas poses a health threat.
Radon gas exposure is causing lung cancer to workers around the world. Radon levels vary a lot with location and type of work. It is therefore recommended to use radon dosimetry to monitor all workers. The radon dosimeters are normally used for the measurement of recordable effective dose (dose history) from exposure to radon, but we can also offer measurement of its decay products.
