Radon / Indoor
Air Quality Program
Through a cooperative agreement with the
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Indoor Environments Division (U.S.
EPA/IED), NEHA administered its Radon/Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Program
to train environmental health professionals (EHPs) about IAQ and radon.
participated in three-day workshops designed to teach risk assessment
and risk communication information about the health effects of long-term
exposure to elevated levels of radon gas, asthma triggers, and other
indoor air contaminants.
This program was a
significant component of a larger
national radon risk effort. To date,
NEHA has trained a network of well over 1,000 EHPs on radon and other
under This Program:
Resistant New Construction (RRNC) Workshop:
2 ½ day workshop designed to allow participants to gain more
knowledge in the technical components of RRNC, the health effects of
exposure to elevated levels of radon gas, and building code
2-day workshop designed to reflect national priorities in addressing IAQ
and the health impacts resulting from IAQ contaminants.
IAQ Tools for
Schools National Symposium:
sponsored individuals to attend this symposium, sponsored by U.S.
EPA, which features innovative sessions that address various topics
associated with implementing an IAQ program in a school setting.
