Studsvik Radiation Protection Advisers (RPAs) offer professional and experienced advice on radon measurement, management and regulatory compliance. Our advice ensures our clients can safely operate within their work environment and manage or mitigate the risks posed by radon.
Radon is a colourless and odourless radioactive gas, formed from the uranium in all rocks and soils and as it seeps out of the ground it can build up in houses and workplaces. If this radioactive gas is inhaled by occupants of the building then it can cause damage which can lead to lung cancer.
Studsvik has extensive experience providing radon-related support to clients; including radon risk mapping, management of identified hazards, advising on compliance with the Ionising Radiations Regulations 2017 (IRR17) and notifying the HSE, radon awareness training and radon risk assessments. Our support will ensure your workforce or tenants remain safe and ensure your regulatory compliance.
Studsvik can help with assessing which premises require monitoring, and arrange for the monitoring to be carried out. Above ground workplaces should be monitored if they are in areas known to be affected by radon. All occupied work places below ground, or those containing an open water source, should also be monitored.
We are experienced in the assessment of monitoring results against regulatory requirements and recommending actions required to mitigate the hazard.
