Penalties imposed on Cayuga Centers over asbestos violations

Citations and thousands of dollars in fines were imposed on Cayuga Centers due to the suspicion that they were negligent in complying with asbestos laws, an article of auburnpub.com reported on November 11.

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Cayuga’s facility in Auburn committed three asbestos violations deemed “serious” that could put workers at risk. The citations were served in late October after OSHA conducted an investigation at an ongoing renovation site in a Cayuga facility. OSHA’s investigation concluded that four people likely contacted asbestos during the time. OSHA initially imposed a $10,689 fine. However, the fine dropped to $8,016.75 and Cayuga settled it. Cayuga also took corrective measures to remove asbestos. Cayuga Centers CEO Edward Hayes reported that the asbestos detected in their facility was never considered a health hazard.

Unfortunately, workers are likely exposed to hazardous asbestos dust when companies are cited for asbestos violations. However, if you think you got sick due to your employer’s negligence, a lawyer at Williams Kherkher may be able to represent you.
