Radon is fast becoming an important issue to Canadians and for good reason. According to Health Canada, exposure to radon gas is the greatest cause of lung cancer in non-smokers. Radon can become concentrated inside buildings and the only way to know how much there is to test for it. Whether you are managing a single building or a portfolio of 1,000’s of buildings, this seminar is intended to provide a roadmap on how to test for radon and if the levels are high, how to lower them. Information on how to prioritize testing in a large portfolio of buildings is also discussed.
