Description:
I'm pleased to Introduce the Annual Report and Accounts of Radiological Protection Institute of Ireland for 2004. The year one of good progress in enhancing in a number of ways the protection of people In Ireland against hazards arising from ionising radiation, whether these hazards originate from Within the country from abroad it is by far the dominant source of radiation exposure of the Institute continues to devote significant effort to programme of reduong exposure to radon both at home and In workplace. The Increase of more than 150% in the number of measurements undertaken by householders dunng the year compared with previous years demonstrates the success of this programme The result of research commissioned by the Institute found that 75% of the general population aware of radon is also an indicator of progress. However, despite increasing awareness of the issue, the number of houses with radon levels the reference level which have been identified to date remains low at about 3,5% of the total estimate of 91,000. Of the houses identified, indications are that less than 100 have been remediated. While the apparent apathy in Ireland concerning radon mirrors that In many other countries, the health risk is such that the issue cannot be ignored and the Instrtute is committed to developing and innovative strategies to encourage householders to reduce exposure to radon in their homes
