Radon: Achieving Workplace Statutory Compliance
Did you know – Radon is known to be the second largest cause of lung cancer and the third leading cause of premature deaths in the UK?
Whilst awareness is building on the potential health implications of long-term exposure to the natural gas, more could be done to ensure employers have an adequate and appropriate strategy in place to protect employees and achieve workplace statutory compliance.
Under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, employers must, so far as is reasonably practical, ensure the health and safety of employees and others who have access to their work environment. Depending on the potential level of risk, properties will need to be assessed for radon levels on a regular basis as part of an ongoing mitigation strategy.
The whitepaper, written by Principal Consultant Ian Mitchell, explores the risks and effects of radon and best practices to achieve a safer workplace through effective radon management.
