Radon is a colourless, odourless radioactive gas that is formed by the radioactive decay of elements that occur naturally in rocks and soils.
Radon is the single biggest source of radiation exposure to the UK population in both homes and workplaces.
Public Health England (PHE) have today published a report that presents the various elements that make up the national radon strategy and the national radon action plan. This helps fulfill relevant requirements in the 2013 European Union Basic Safety Standards Directive on protection against ionising radiation.
