MA company fined for asbestos violations

The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection, or MassDEP, recently fined a Delware-based company, Life Technologies Corporation, $7,940 for violating state asbestos regulations.  The violations occurred at one of the company's former locations at 94-96 South Street in Hopkinton.

During MassDEP's inspection of the facility, investigators found floor tiles coated with asbestos-containing adhesive left in an open container in the parking lot.  The company was fined for not informing MassDEP of the removal of asbetos-containing materials, not properly removing the materials and allowing materials to be handled in a manner that contributed to air pollution.

Deputy director of the MassDEP Central Regional Office in Worcester Michael J. Maher stated, "Corporations in Massachusetts must be fully aware of their responsibilities under the regulations to thoroughly inspect areas of their facilities for the presence of asbestos containing materials prior to  commencing renovation or demolition work".

If you or someone you know has become ill due to asbestos exposure, contact the Asbestos-related disease attorneys of Williams Kherkher at 800-781-3955 to learn more about your rights.
