Fines for Improper Asbestos Removal

In the past six years, individual states have taken the lead in imposing fines to protect the health and welfare of Americans. These states, located primarily in New England, the Mountain West, and the Pacific Northwest, have done a much better job than the federal government, particularly on asbestos issues.

Colorado, Montana, and Washington are perfect examples of individual states that have imposed stringent regulations concerning asbestos abatement. Individuals and business entities alike that engage in asbestos abatement on a professional basis must be certified, licensed, and adhere to strict regulations and safety practices. New Hampshire also takes the dangers of asbestos seriously. The state has laws that provide for harsh penalties in cases of violations.

While compliance with safety and licensing requirements can be expensive, it is far less expensive than ignoring or purposefully violating the asbestos laws and regulations. Furthermore, the costs of complying with the rules are a bargain compared to the financial, social, and human costs of asbestos-related diseases.

Overall, the states have made great strides in punishing those individuals who put the health of their employees at risk by exposing them to asbestos.
