The handbook focuses on residential radon exposure from a public health point of view. It is aimed at countries thinking about implementing a national radon program, or expanding a program that already exists. It will also help various stakeholders, like the construction industry and building professionals, involved in radon control.
Of course there will be a lot of great information for the practicing radon professional, mitigation professional, and real estate professional. Of particular interest will be a chapter on risk communication strategies.
The WHO International Radon Project was launched back in 2005. This handbook is just one of the key accomplishments so far. For more information about the WHO International Radon Project, or to download the handbook when available, please visit their website.
