Naturally Occurring Asbestos

While preparing for the projects, the Government of Yukon learned that natural asbestos may be present in some soil samples in the Dawson area.The government hired an industrial hygienist to develop an asbestos exposure control plan, which has been included as an addendum to the tenders for these projects. Companies will have to provide asbestos-mitigation plans that meet the requirements of the asbestos exposure control plan – as well as the Occupational Hygiene regulations of the Yukon Workers’ Compensation Board – to protect their workers and the public while the projects are being built.
