Epidemiological studies of underground miners and pooled residential studies have provided strong evidence of the risks of lung cancer following exposure to radon and its progeny (UNSCEAR, , ICRP, ).Risk estimates obtained from the data for exposures in homes are sufficiently robust for protection of the public to be based on measurement and control of radon.

  The high values of radon concentrations measured in abandoned gold mines can reach about three times the upper action level recommended by the ICRP for workplaces (Anjos et al., ). Radon levels in the atmosphere of mines vary over time depending on the type of mine, geological formations, working conditions and parameters such as. Examples of radon other than uranium Tourist Caves and Mines Open to Visitors - in some caves as high as 20, Bq/m3. Graphite mines - radon concentrations vary winter and summer but levels up to Bq/m3 Fluorspar - radon concentration in Newfoundland mine averaged around Bq/m3 Oil shale mines - average radon concentrations o.

Regulation 66 of the Radiological Protection Act, (Ionising Radiation) Regulations, , (SI No 30 of ), places a Mines, show caves and other underground workplaces are particularly at risk and should be measured for radon. For other workplaces not located in a High Radon Area, employers are urged to take a proactive approach.   Tourist guides can work about h per year, so the only option to protect them and other cave workers from radon exposure is to apply an appropriate system of radiation protection mainly based on limitation of exposure by restricting the amount of time spent in the cave.

Description This report deals with radon and thoron and their decay products in workplaces other than mines. It is intended for use in the application of radiation protection principles in those workplaces where employers may not have an extensive background in radiation protection.

Report on radiation protection in workplaces other than mines. The objective of the Safety Report is to provide practical guidance to employers whose workplaces may be affected by radon concentrations in excess of action levels defined in the Report.

The. Summary: This report deals with radon and thoron and their decay products in workplaces other than mines. It is intended for use in the application of radiation protection principles in those workplaces where employers may not have an extensive background in radiation protection.

Safety Reports Series No. 33 This report deals with radon and thoron and their decay products in workplaces other than mines. It is intended for use in the application of radiation protection principles in those workplaces where employers may not have an extensive background in radiation protection.

This report, which is also co-sponsored by the International Labour Office, deals with radon and thoron and their decay products in workplaces other than mines. It is intended for use in the application of radiation protection principles in those workplaces where employers may not have an extensive background in radiation protection.

In its most recent recommendations on radon exposure, the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) encouraged national authorities to set a radon reference level (RL) based on an annual effective dose within the range of 1–20 mSv for members of the public and workers alike (10).

The primary duty under the Act: Each employer shall furnish to each of his employees employment and a place of employment, which are free from. In caves, mines, and other enclosed spaces concentrations are considerably higher because radon builds up.

In the Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico, concentrations as low as 2 Bq/m 3 have been measured while levels as high as a few Megabecquerel per cubic meters have been reported in enclosed mines (3). occurring radioactive materials (NORM) - Radiation Protection and Radioactive Waste Management in the Oil and Gas Industry and Radiation Protection against Radon in Workplaces other than Mines are about to be published, and reports on industrial uses of.

homes and other residential buildings where they may be performing rehabilitation and rebuilding work. In work areas with elevated radon levels—including radon remediation work—worker protection involves engineering controls, work practices and personal protective equipment (PPE).

Inhalation is the route of exposure of most concern to. Health surveillance for emergency workers exposed to high doses also needs further consideration.

Exposure of aircrew to cosmic radiation, radon at the workplace other than mines and protection of pregnant women against radiation continue to be of concern to the affected workers and to some of the national regulatory bodies. The IAEA has published a safety guide on Protection of the Public against Exposure Indoors due to Radon and Other Natural Sources of Radiation to assist national authorities in reducing exposure to radon.

This safety guide also includes guidance on how to prepare a radon action plan.

The six modules, developed in collaboration with the World Health Organization, target university students, teachers, radon professionals, authorities and governmental bodies, medical professionals and communication professionals working with radon.

The Safety Guide will cover protection of workers against exposure due to radon in all different types of workplaces including workplaces in above ground buildings (e.g. offices, shops, industrial facilities), underground workplaces (e.g. mines, excavations works, tunnels, storages), as well as, within industries involving NORM that results in occupational exposure to radon.

Exposure to radon in schools is often viewed separately from that in other workplaces, to emphasize protection of young people and because large numbers of people are potentially exposed.

Although occupancy rates of schools are lower than those of dwellings, some countries have adopted the same action levels for both.

If the WL concentration exceeds 10 WL, protection against radon gas shall be provided by supplied air devices or by face masks containing absorbent material capable of removing both radon and its daughters.
