The Radiation Safety Institute of Canada was founded as an independent, non-partisan, non-governmental body to promote safety in relation to radiation exposure in the workplace and in homes, schools and the environment. Its founding was a direct, independent response to the human disaster in the Elliot Lake uranium mines, where healthy miners had been exposed to excessive amounts of a common radioactive gas (called radon) in the underground mining environment.
The Radiation Safety Institute of Canada is also a registered charity.
