May 4: Online Asbestos Registry Launched


The government launched a new user-friendly and searchable online asbestos registry, which will let workers, employers and the general public easily search and find asbestos in public buildings across Saskatchewan. The new registry is mobile-friendly and includes map enabled searching with geo-locating capabilities. The government also established an asbestos advisory committee to provide input to the Ministry of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety on asbestos-related health and safety issues.
