Radon in the Workplace Webinar
June 7 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Take Action on Radon- Get a free detector to test your workplace.
Radon is a gas that you cannot see, smell, or taste — but it can be dangerous. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers, and greatly multiplies the risk for smokers.
The indoor levels of radon in any indoor space, new, old, renovated, office, leisure or workplace buildings cannot be predicted. Therefore, all indoor environment (home, work, leisure) space needs to be tested for radon by conducting a long-term test (minimum 91 days) during the Winter heating season, in the lowest level of the home or building that is occupied >4 hours per day.
Employers are responsible to ensure a safe environment for their clients and workers. If you or your employees work in an indoor environment, you should test your workplace for radon.
The 2023 radon test kit program is focused on general workplaces and Medical and Healthcare professional buildings/ offices. If your workplace is located within Central Okanagan (the City of Kelowna, Regional District of Central Okanagan, District of Peachland, City of West Kelowna, Westbank First Nation and the District of Lake Country), you can, while supplies last, get a free radon detector to test your office this Fall by pre-registering here.
