Radon is in the ground naturally, and sometimes gets into workplaces through contact with the ground.
Radon is a gas that you can’t see, smell, or taste — but it can be dangerous. It’s the second leading cause of lung cancer in Canada.
4% of Federal Buildings tested were above 200 Bq/m3
CAREX estimates 188,000 Canadians are exposed to elevated radon levels at their workplace.
