The IRMA workshop is the first event organized by the association and will bring together a pool of international experts.

The event will focus on radon measurements at workplaces and Maria Hansen, the chair of IRMA, will present the guideline developed by the association to help users with radon measurements at workplaces: how many detectors to use, where to deploy detectors, how to perform the analysis, etc.

Other relevant speakers will be experts coming from ERA (Per Nilsson, ERA’s President), Dr. Zornitza Daraktchieva (UKSHA), and David Lenden (RPA, RPMatters, UK).

UKRA Radon Symposium

On the 23rd UKRA will provide its annual symposium that will cover different topics such as new radon maps, updates from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), and the latest research into the health effects from exposure to radon.

One of the key speakers will be Dr. Aaron Goodarzi from Canada. Dr. Goodarzi is a world-wide recognised radon expert that will deliver a presentation about the science behind the dangerous effects of radon exposure.

The second part of the symposium will tackle the issue of housing associations and radon risk. This is a trending topic and involves issues regarding energy costs and assignment of responsibilities
