The very first UK Radon Awareness Week campaign will be happening between 7th – 13th November 2015. The campaign is being organised by UKRA in collaboration with Public Health England (PHE) and BRE Academy.
The campaign aims to raise awareness of radon, the second leading cause of lung cancer, amongst a wide range of people in the UK. From the general public to employers, healthcare professionals to those in the construction industry, an increased awareness of radon will lead to a reduction in the number of avoidable lung cancer cases claiming lives each year.
A dedicated website, www.radonweek.co.uk has been created, and a number of posters are already available for download. More resources, including a video of an awareness ‘stunt’ that UKRA will soon be carrying out will be available soon.
