CARST 7th Annual Radon Conference

On April 24, 2018, Robert Woon will be speaking at the 7th Annual CARST Radon Conference in Ottawa, Ontario.

Robert's presentation is titled: Radon - Managing Risks and Liabilities.

Radon is a classic example of the law playing catch up to the science.  There is growing awareness among governments and other stakeholders about the health risks of radon.  Understanding the current legal landscape is essential to managing radon risks and liabilities.

Robert Woon will provide an overview about how radon is regulated by governments and the courts, and where the law will likely develop.  Robert will review potential risks and liabilities for developers, home buyers and sellers, and radon measurement and mitigation professionals.  Robert will also discuss how insurance companies are responding to this emerging insurable risk.
