Environment and Public Health
We develop policy to help respond to environmental threats and hazards to human health including chemicals and radiation.
Radiation and Health
The Welsh Government wants to reduce the risks to health from exposure to ionising radiation and non-ionising radiation.
This could include radon gas, electromagnetic fields, sunlight (UV radiation), artificial tanning devices and radiofrequencies.
Carbon monoxide in the home is responsible for a considerable number of deaths each year and for many more cases of sub-lethal poisonings.
