Meet OSHA and HUD standards and protect your employees from harmful radon.
Workplaces can pose significant risk of radon exposure for employees. New regulations that are intended to protect worker health (including radon exposure tracking) are currently major focal points of government agencies such as OSHA and HUD.
Industrial structures such as office buildings and warehouses pose significant risks due to the number of people who spend a significant period of time in those structures each day.
The sheer size of an industrial warehouse can hold a large amount of radon, and it is important for businesses to conduct radon testing (and commercial radon mitigation if necessary) on a regular basis.

RADON GAS OVERVIEW
Radon is a radioactive element that is part of the radioactive decay chain of naturally occurring uranium in soil. Radon gas from soil can enter buildings through gaps and cracks in the foundation or through crawl spaces.
According to the EPA, studies find direct evidence linking radon in homes to lung cancer.
It is especially dangerous because you can’t see it, smell it or taste it. Unlike carbon monoxide and many other home pollutants, radon’s adverse health effects occur over time with frequent exposure to high levels of radon gas.
Bi-annually radon gas testing is highly recommended and can often save lives.
