Radon, the naturally occurring radioactive gas that is responsible for thousands of lung cancer cases each year in the United Kingdom is the most widespread ground gas that affects building occupants.
The seminar covers both the theoretical and practical elements of the topic, and discusses:
the Building Regulations
best practice for radon protection in new buildings
methods of remediation for high levels found in existing buildings
how to tackle radon in basements
obligations for employers and landlords
the guidance produced by the Health Protection Agency and Building Research Establishment.
Case studies are used throughout, to provide engaging illustrations of the issues covered.
