Health Canada (2012) and Thunder Bay District Health Unit (2015) studies have identified the potential for elevated radon concentrations to exist in residential buildings in northwestern Ontario, including in Thunder Bay. Elevated radon concentrations may also exist in workplace buildings. Employers may need to assess and control radon exposure within the context of the Canadian Guidelines for the Management of Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials (NORM) radon guidelines for workplace buildings.
The session topics include radon background information (what is radon, what is the risk of radon exposure) as well as assessment and control of radon in workplace buildings. Our guest speakers are:
Mr. Mainul Husain, Regional Radiation Specialist, Health Canada
Ms. Laura Boksman, Chief Scientist, Radiation Safety Institute of Canada
This meeting is a joint venture of the Canadian Society of Safety Engineering (CSSE) Northwestern Ontario Chapter and the Occupational Hygiene Association of Ontario (OHAO).
