The Workplace Health, Safety and Compensation Commission (WHSCC), the United Steelworkers (USW), and the Baie Verte Peninsula Miners' Action Committee created the Baie Verte Miners' Registry to help collect, complete and verify records in order to track the health and work history of any person who worked at the mine or mill in Baie Verte. The work on this project began in August, 2008 and data collection ended in July, 2011. The Registry has 1,003 registrants.

This Registry brings information from many different sources together in one secure place for each person who registers ('registrant'). The information will be easily accessible by the registrant and the WHSCC if a claim is filed for a disease that may be related to asbestos exposure. Information from the Registry can also be used by a registrant's health professional to help diagnose and treat diseases and conditions that may be caused by asbestos.

The Workplace Health, Safety and Compensation Commission wishes to inform Registrants that the information they provide to the Registry is fully protected as private information and will not be shared with any person or organization without the registrant's explicit written consent.
