Safety Manager Claims Grand Canyon Museumgoers Exposed To Uranium For Years

According to a report by Gizmodo, earlier this month, a National Park Service safety manager sent a 'rogue' email alleging the improper storage of radioactive material at a Grand Canyon facility frequently visited by children. The Arizona Republic originally reported that safety, health, and wellness manager Elston “Swede” Stephenson, three 5-gallon containers of uranium ore were kept near a taxidermy exhibit at the Grand Canyon’s Museum Collections Building for nearly two decades before they were discovered last year and quietly disposed of. The email reportedly reads, "If you were in the Museum Collections Building (2C) between the year 2000 and June 18, 2018, you were ‘exposed’ to uranium by OSHA’s definition."
