Title Radon at the workplace
Original title Radon am Arbeitsplatz [in German]
Bibliographic information Dec. 2000, Vol.26, No.12, p.631-633.
Abstract The Austrian Workers' Compensation Board (AUVA) conducts measurements of radon and radon daughters in enterprises. This paper presents the results of measurements carried out in the mining industry as well as in power stations and other enterprises. Among the 16 mining companies where measurements were performed, half had doses higher than the current threshold limit value (0.3WL). In these enterprises the workplace ventilation needs to be improved.
