Asbestos removal contractor in Massachusetts fined for violations

An asbestos removal firm in Massachusetts was recently ordered to pay a fine worth $24,400 after the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (Mass DEP) ruled that they violated asbestos regulations, an article on 22News stated on April 7.

According to reports, contractor firm MJ Environmental improperly extracted asbestos in a building at Bartlett Street in Pittsfield in 2012. The Mass DEP has initially required the firm to pay at least $10,000, but will waive the remaining balance of the fine if MJ properly follows the state’s regulations for removing asbestos for the next two years.

Mass DEP stressed the accountability of asbestos removal firms in protecting the health of the public.

If not properly removed, asbestos may be accidentally inhaled by unsuspecting people, causing them serious, potentially fatal, health problems.
