    Useful HSE resource on the radioactive gas radon, which is a potential hazard in many homes and workplaces in the UK. With respect to the Ionising Radiations Regulations 2017 (IRR17), employers may be ‘working with ionising radiation’ if they have radon levels above 300 Bq /m3 (annual average concentration). Employers are required to review potential radon levels in their workplace, the result of which may require further monitoring or mitigation (e.g. forced ventilation). Ionactive can provide a Radiation Protection Adviser (RPA) service for radon exposure in the workplace.
