Radon, a naturally occurring radioactive gas, poses significant health risks when accumulated in enclosed spaces.

  1. Identify the characteristics of radon gas and its behavior in enclosed environments.
  2. Identify the primary sources of radon exposure in different settings.
  3. Name the health effects associated with radon exposure.
  4. List the regulatory exposure limits and guidelines for radon in occupational environments.
  5. Describe the use of radon detection and mitigation strategies in occupational safety practices.
