On 01 January 2018, the Ionising Radiation Regulations, which includes guidance on monitoring exposure in radon affected workplaces, were updated.
Under the reforms included in the new IRR17, UK businesses will be required to adhere to a revised radon exposure limit of 300Bq/M3 in the workplace, replacing the previous 400Bq/M3 threshold stated in IRR99.
The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) has also introduced a three-tier system, known as the ‘graded approach’, requiring organisations to either notify, register or get consent from the watchdog for certain work relating to unsafe levels of exposure.
Are you aware of these changes? Join our live webinar on Monday 30 April at 11:00am
This is your opportunity to join Ian Mitchell, principal consultant at Bureaus Veritas, for a live webinar covering everything you need to know on IRR17. Ian will be using his experience and regulatory knowledge to provide insights into the changes included in the regulations and to help businesses better understand their requirements.
Ian adds: “For many employers these new regulations will be hard to decipher as so much is dependent on individual circumstances such as property type, sector and location.
“Thankfully, the Bureau Veritas expert radon team are on hand to help companies ensure they have the right preventative and protective measures in place that meet the new standards. This webinar will discuss the challenges and provide you with the opportunity to ask questions to make sure you are fully prepared.”
