This document should not be thought of as the end point in the process of managing radon-related risks. Instead, it is more a first milestone. We believe that it will allow public authorities to continue this process on more precise foundations. The document presents the state of knowledge and critically reviews the different intervention options. It does not present a detailed program, but instead a process for the gradual implementation of different interventions.
This text is a summary of the scientific report “Le radon au Quebec – Évaluation du risque à la santé et analyse critique des stratégies d'intervention", available in French only on the Institut national de santé publique du Quebec Web site.
