Northern Sun Completes Successful Asbestos Removal
At Its Timmins Properties
Awareness of the health hazards associated with prolonged exposure to large amounts of asbestos, a carcinogenic substance, has prompted many businesses to get serious about asbestos removal.
Northern Sun Mining Corp., for example, shut down its Timmins-based Redstone Mill and McWatters Mine sites during asbestos removal to ensure effective rehabilitation and protect employees and visitors from further exposure.
It is an organization’s responsibility to ensure safe working conditions. Failure to do so can cause your business to be shut down by regulatory authorities as the Ministry of Labour did with the McWatters nickel mine in Timmins. Asbestos exposure has been linked to many serious illnesses including:
- Asbestosis - a scarring of the lungs that makes breathing difficult
- Mesothelioma - an otherwise rare cancer of the lining of the chest or abdominal cavity
- Lung cancer
- Cancer of the larynx
- Ovarian cancer
- Respiratory illnesses
Businesses in Toronto can take advantage of licensed asbestos remediation services like Asbestos Environmental Of Canada (AEOC) to ensure that their employees, customers and visitors are not exposed to this deadly substance.
Asbestos removal is a complex process that should only be handled by certified professionals. Even the slightest disturbance brings with it the risk of releasing air borne fibres which could settle in your lungs. Sealing of contaminated areas, wearing safety gear and having the right asbestos abatement equipment like a high-powered HEPA vacuum are just a few of the crucial steps in the process.
