Airthings presented a speech at the radon gas seminar held by the Norwegian branch of the Society of Indoor Air Quality and Climate (ISIAQ, http://www.isiaq.org). ISIAQ is an international organization that supports healthy, comfortable, indoor environments that encourage productivity. Promoting improved indoor air quality through science and technology, and encouraging communication among nations and between disciplines, the ISIAQ actively works to deliver guidelines designed to improve the indoor air environment.
ISIAQ’s Norwegian branch – Norsk Innemiljøorganisasjon (NIO, http://www.isiaq.no) – is heavily focused on precautionary action. At a time when authorities are allocating major resources to repair and treatment, the NIO stresses the importance of safeguarding indoor air quality through precautionary action, both in the workplace and at home.
In line with Airthings’ vision, this focus increases the general awareness of the threat posed by radon gas, empowering people and workplaces to easily measure and monitor radon in the indoor environment. Because radon gas is both colorless and odorless, the danger of its presence in buildings often goes unnoticed until health is compromised.
Radon ranks high as a significant cause of lung cancer. New digital technology for radon monitoring in buildings now makes early warning simple and affordable, providing important information that saves lives.
Airthings is looking forward to working closely with NIO and ISIAQ, helping consumers to detect and monitor radon gas in their indoor environments.
