Register online for the challenge and we’ll send you a toolkit with easy instructions, educational materials and a free radon test kit!

Inform employees about radon.  You can share resources from the toolkit, join a free webinar, or host a Lunch and Learn session (we provide all the materials you need).

Test your workplace for radon during the winter months using your free test kit. Or, hold a draw and offer the test kit to a lucky employee for home testing.

Exposure to radon gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer in Canada, second only to smoking.
