Description:
Radon is a radioactive gas found in soil and rock that you cannot see, smell, or taste. According to the American Cancer Society, radon exposure can lead to lung cancer. In 2013, HUD issued a notice to housing authorities encouraging them to test and mitigate for radon, as of today, HUD does not have comprehensive requirements or guidance and provides no specific funding to pay for the work. This session will discuss the system of project implementation, policies, procedures as well as how to protect employees and be in compliance with OSHA regulations. We will also discuss institutional roles and responsibilities for project owners.
