Health and Safety in Teleworking

According to Health Canada, spending more than 4 hours a day in a room with radon concentrations higher than the Canadian standard established at 200 Bq / m3 puts health at risk.

As teleworking becomes a widespread trend, exposure to radon gas over longer periods of time increases and in addition, the risk of developing serious conditions as well.

A MONSTER IN THE BASEMENT

Your office and that of your employees are most likely located in rooms at high risk of exposure to radon gas.

Radon concentration is usually higher in areas located near floors such as basements and ground floors with slabs on the floor.

More specifically, the rooms most at risk of exposure to radon:

  • Living space or work area located in the basement
  • Living space or work area arranged above a crawl space
  • Living space or work area on the ground floor of a building without a basement

The threat is real, invisible, odorless, and carcinogenic.

Don’t wait for one of your employees to develop a serious illness.
