OSHA cites demolition firm for violating asbestos removal safety rules

An Augusta-based demolition firm received citations from the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) due to alleged violations of asbestos removal while demolishing Grovetown School last July, a report by the Augusta Chronicle on Wednesday, January 15 stated.

In the documents gathered from OSHA, it was reported that employees of Thompson Building and Wrecking Co. were exposed to materials with asbestos. OSHA cited the demolition company after it allegedly failed to isolate areas where hazardous asbestos were being extracted and failed to do air checks.

The firm, owned by Hiram Thomson, has already paid fines worth $14,700, but OSHA has placed another fine of $49,000 against the company for alleged improper handling of asbestos-laden materials to prevent workers from being exposed to the hazardous contaminants.

Asbestos exposure is extremely hazardous to a person’s health and can lead to fatal illnesses like mesothelioma. Call 800-781-3955 today if you think you have been exposed to this hazardous contaminant and would like more information.
