California Firm Fined for Asbestos Violations

CT EL Centro, LLC, a firm located in El Centro, California, was recently fined $9,027.00 for failure to follow procedure when demolishing a local building. Specifically, the demolition action violated the National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants regulations.

The EPA had the following comment:

“When a building is demolished, asbestos must be properly removed in order to protect the health of the public and immediate community,” said Deborah Jordan, director of the EPA’s Air Division for the Pacific Southwest. “Appropriate regulatory agencies must be notified in advance so they can ensure that the required safeguards are in place.”

Perhaps the most telling/compelling statement made in this article is as follows:

“The EPA has classified asbestos, a known carcinogen, as a hazardous air pollutant. Individuals exposed to asbestos fibers are at risk of contracting illnesses such as mesothelioma and lung cancer.”

If you have been exposed to asbestos in any way, you need to make sure that you get immediate medical attention to detect the results of exposure as early as possible. You should also contact the asbestos lawyers at Williams Kherkher today for a free initial consultation.
