Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Contractor fined over $33K for asbestos violations

An environmental remediation company has been fined $33,550 by state regulators after the removal of asbestos from a Naval Weapons Station.

According to officials, LVI Environmental Services of North Carolina, the asbestos removal company did no follow the proper removal procedures when handling the toxic material when materials were removed from some of the housing units in the station.

A spokesperson from the company has not yet responded. When disposed of improperly, the asbestos fibers may become airborne and then they can be very dangerous. The fibers can lodge in a person’s lungs and remain dormant for years until causing lung cancer, asbestosis or mesothelioma.
