Chicago companies cited for exposing workers to asbestos

At least six companies in Chicago were recently cited by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for committing asbestos violations during construction at a school, Chicago Tribune reported on December 31.

OSHA and the state’s Department of Public Health stated that the six companies involved in the renovation of the cafeteria inside Chute Middle School allegedly exposed its workers to asbestos dust. Reports said OSHA may order the companies to pay $132,000 worth of penalties for not requiring its workers to wear protective gear while working with asbestos-laden pipes. Debris believed to have contained asbestos were not properly disposed of, and air samples were not taken during the renovation. The companies were given time to either challenge or confirm the citations against them.

Sadly many workers are suffering fatal health conditions after being exposed to asbestos minerals. If this happens to you, working with a lawyer could be critical to holding negligent companies accountable for your suffering.
