EPA Steps Up Enforcement of Asbestos Recordkeeping

The Environmental Protection Agency has stepped up its enforcement of asbestos recordkeeping. In Maryland, the number of citations for violations has exploded. While the agency was averaging less than one citation a year from 2001 through September 2006, they have given out 16 citations since September 2006.

While the number of citations has gone up dramatically, none of these citations are related to exposure to asbestos, the carcinogenic material. Instead, they are all tied to a lack of records on behalf of various school systems in the state. The schools are required to maintain an asbestos management plan but these plans are often forgotten by many busy principals.

Asbestos is believed to be found in every school across the state that was built before October 1998. Despite this, there has not been a report of exposure to asbestos since the schools have been required to maintain management plans.

If you or someone you know has been exposed to asbestos or diagnosed with mesothelioma, contact the Mesothelioma Lawsuit Attorneys of Williams Kherkher at 1-866-950-9000 to discuss your legal options and to schedule a free initial consultation.
