Exposure to Radon: What you should know! – Webinar

Back to previous page

Radon may be a colourless, odourless gas, but it’s a dangerous one that poses a significant lung cancer risk. It’s important that building managers and landlords understand what radon is, where it’s found and the associated health effects. This 1.25-hour webinar, presented by BC Lung Association and hosted by BCNPHA, will equip you with the knowledge to:

  • identify the various indoor air pollutants and radon in particular;
  • understand how you can be exposed to radon gas;
  • understand the health impacts associated with radon exposure; and
  • learn about testing and mitigation solutions.

Who should attend: Anyone who manages non-profit housing buildings, such as maintenance personnel, landlords, and support staff.
