Certain kinds of industrial and environmental work sites require frequent or continuous monitoring (called “area monitoring“) to ensure that radiation levels are maintained below regulatory exposure limits and guidelines.
Typical of common radiation hazards that may require such monitoring is the presence of radioactive radon and thoron gases and of breathable radioactive dust in the air.
The Radiation Safety Institute of Canada has the scientific and technical expertise and the specialized laboratories and equipment to carry out workplace monitoring for all of these potential radiation hazards.
We can supply the service for short or extended periods, as required. The Radiation Safety Institute of Canada’s National Laboratories are the only laboratories in North America specially designed and equipped to support this kind of workplace monitoring.
