Evaluation of radon exposure at a government facility - Maine

  • Description:
    A NIOSH investigator evaluated employee exposures to radon. We found that radon levels in the first floor work area were well below the OSHA PEL of 100 pCi/L, and also below the much lower EPA residential guideline of 4 pCi/L. However, radon levels in the basement were higher than on the first floor, but the basement was typically unoccupied. We recommend that employees minimize the time they spend in the basement to keep exposure to radon as low as practical. If the basement is ever used as a work space, installing a basement radon mitigation system should be considered.
