Saskatchewan Passes Mandatory Asbestos Reporting Act

The Act was named after the late Howard Willems, whose efforts spearheaded the bill

Asbestos reporting can be just as valuable as asbestos testing. Barrie, Newmarket and Toronto residents have a right to know if their building has ever been tested for asbestos.

Saskatchewan has set a great example for the rest of Canada, by becoming the first province to require mandatory asbestos reporting.

Saskatchewan has proclaimed The Public Health (Howard’s Law) Amendment Act, which makes the web-based Saskatchewan Asbestos Registry mandatory for:

• Crown corporations
• School districts
• Health regions and facilities
• Provincial government buildings

The mandatory registry was named after Howard Willems, whose efforts spearheaded the bill. Willems passed away a year ago after being diagnosed with cancer from asbestos related causes.

“It is fitting that we honour Mr. Willems, who passed away one year ago, with the proclamation of this bill,” Labour Relations and Workplace Safety Minister Don Morgan said. “This registry would not have been possible without the passionate advocacy of Mr. Willems.”

In November 2012, the government launched a voluntary registry for organizations to post information about asbestos containing material in buildings. This new act builds on that, and makes it mandatory to ensure your building is listed on the province’s online registry, if there is asbestos present anywhere in your facilities.

If you have any questions about asbestos testing in Barrie, Newmarket or Toronto, please contact us any time.
