PHE has four decades of experience and expertise in delivering radon programmes for workplaces. Our measurement service and advice are underpinned by our scientific research. We provide radon monitors, advise you on how to check your workplace and what to do when action needs to be taken under the new Ionising Radiations Regulations 2017.

Employers have a responsibility to ensure the health and safety of employees.

Radon should be identified as a hazard under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 if you have a workplace where any of the following apply: the building is in a radon Affected Area, you have a basement (occupied more than 50 hours per year), it is an underground environment (mine, cave, tunnel), or you have a radon source (geological sample).

Radon is a natural radioactive gas, you can’t see smell or taste it. The damage caused to our lungs by breathing in radon increases the risk of lung cancer.

View the interactive map on and find out if your workplace is in a radon Affected Area.

PHE’s Radon Services Team can help you through this process. Please email us for more information.
