Radon dosimetry is mainly used in mines and underground facilities where radon levels are often high. Other workplaces with high radon levels can include NORM activities such as hydroelectric and water treatment plants, fertilizer production, recycling manufacturing, oil and gas production, metal mining and smelting, and more. High radon levels and long-term radon exposure increase workers’ chances of developing lung cancer. Radon dosimetry is needed to monitor individual workers in these environments plus other workplaces where high radon levels have been identified.
Radonova personal radon dosimetry service includes:
- Radtrak2 detectors
- Detector holder clips
- Background measurement detectors
- Accredited analysis report with employee name and ID, detector number, background reference exposure, worked hours, radon exposure, measured dose, and accumulated annual dose reported in WLM, mSV, pCi/L, and/or Bq/m3,
- Customized plan as requested
- Telephone support as needed
How it Works
Indoor air quality and clean air is a priority in all workplaces with radon exposure potentially affecting all indoor workers. A radon measurement of the workplace is recommended before performing a radon dosimetry project for individual employees,
The dosimeter is worn by each employee during the workday. During non-working hours the dosimeter is stored in a room or locker where continuous measurement of radon levels takes place with a background radon detector. Once the project is complete the personal dosimetry detectors and background detectors are sent to our lab. An accredited analysis report will be emailed and available online through our 24/7 Radonline service.
