Welcome to Radon Awareness Week 2016

The UK Radon Awareness Weeks starts on November 7th with the European Radon Day and in memory of Marie Curie, who discovered radium, the source of radon, a little over 100 years ago.

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that emanates from the soil. It is everywhere, unavoidable and harmless outside. Radon can enter buildings from the ground, increasing the radon concentration in the indoor. This increases the risk of lung cancer.

Radon is easy to measure and in most cases, simple to mitigate against.

More information can be found on this site including useful downloads.

Further information about radon can be obtained from the PHE website: http://www.ukradon.org/
