This document highlights the main findings from the Radon Know Your Level and Awareness Campaign in 2016/2017.
This report provides an overview of sun and heat safety in Windsor-Essex County using data from emergency department visits, hospitalizations, and deaths (this data captures illnesses resulting from the direct effects of heat and sunlight). This report also uses data from the Rapid Risk Factor Surveillance System to provide a summary of sun safety behaviours and community support for shade in outdoor public places.
The Windsor-Essex County (WEC) Health Unit began a radon awareness campaign in late 2015. As a part of the campaign, participants who were owners of private detached homes were recruited to determine radon levels in participant homes and in the areas of WEC. This report contains the results of the study.
