Product Description

The Victoria Radon Alarm is a unique, affordable device that measures radon gas concentrations in real-time, allowing an on-site risk assessment to be carried out.

Most methods of  radon gas detection measure the radon decay product so any reading that is given is up to 48 hours out of date. For long term measurements this is no problem. This dose pose a problem for employers who are required to carry out radon risk assessments for employees who may only be spending a short period of time in a given location.

Field staff such as maintenance engineers, civil engineers, basement waterproofing technicians and so on spend much of their working week in environments that are at high risk of elevated radon levels. Under the Management of Health & Safety Regulations, employers are required to carry out radon risk assessments in such work areas. 

The Victoria Radon Alarm offers a solution - a small, portable, battery-operated device that an engineer can carry with them at all times and which will alert them to radon levels in excess of the 'action level' of 200 Bq/m3. This enables employers to ensure their staff are not unknowingly being exposed to high levels of natural radiation without the need for testing to be carried out at each premises in advance of the employee's visit.
