The Ministry of Labour is investigating air quality concerns at Weyerhaeuser’s Dryden mill due to several complaints they received in June.
Contract workers from KCI Construction complained of respiratory problems that they said were from the emissions they inhaled while with working on a recovery boiler project adjacent to the kraft mill.
This $250-million recovery boiler project is aimed at improving air quality at the mill.
Ministry spokeswoman Belinda Sutton said investigators were told that the mill’s air emissions are tested on a regular basis by an inhouse health and safety committee, as well as by a consultant hired by the company.
All emissions have been found to be within allowable limits.
