A property manager in Springfield, Massachusetts will pay a penalty totaling $65,000 for potentially exposing people to hazardous asbestos minerals while conducting renovations, WWLP reported on February 5.
Reports said company NI Management recklessly extracted and dumped asbestos laden debris while renovating a multi-family establishment. Wei Qiang Ni, the owner of NI Management, reportedly worked with his spouse’s company, Dragon Paradise LLC, when they improperly dumped construction rubble that contained asbestos fibers. The state’s Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) stated that they detected asbestos in the lower portion of a building that is used by residents and their children. MassDEP also stressed the health and environmental risks of asbestos. Attorney General Maura Healey said only skilled and licensed workers are allowed to work with asbestos.
