Radon Consulting

EHSP offers a full range of radon consulting services designed to support our clients. Our services begin with the initial stages of radon detection and extend to the implementation of innovative and cost effective mitigation solutions.

What is Radon?

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that is present throughout the environment. It is invisible, odourless, and tasteless.

Outdoors, radon is diluted to low concentrations, lowering its health effects to negligible levels. Indoors, radon can accumulate to high levels in negatively pressurized buildings. Due to the characteristics of radon, building occupants can be unknowingly exposed and prolonged exposure will increase the risk of lung cancer to occupants.

The Health Canada guideline for radon is 200 becquerels per cubic metre (Bq/m³). What are the levels in your home and workplace? Keeping levels as low as reasonable achievable (ALARA) is a best practice for radon and cancer prevention. Measuring the levels in your environment is a great first step.
