Exposure to radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the UK, after smoking. High levels of radon can be found in any type or size of workplace.

Radon Awareness Week 2019
Exposure to radon gas is the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers and is responsible for over 1100 deaths in the UK every year. High levels of radon can be found in buildings of any type, size or location with occupants unaware of the potential danger unless a specific test has been carried out.
Research published earlier this year has found that indoor radon levels are increasing due to the changes we are making to our buildings for energy efficiency purposes. This in turn will lead to an increase in the number of lung cancer deaths attributable to radon exposure.
