Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?





Pennsylvania company fined $490K for violating asbestos law

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) cited an insulation company in York, PA for willfully violating asbestos law, ABC 27 News stated on April 23.

According to reports First Capital Insulation Inc. is being ordered to a pay penalty of $490,000 after allegations that they allowed their three workers to be exposed to asbestos while extracting thermal pipe insulation from a Harrisburg house built in 1928. OSHA told reporters that companies should take special precautions against asbestos exposure when working on thermal pipe insulations in establishments built several decades ago. OSHA agents also found that the company failed to check the proper fitting of their workers’ respirators.

Sadly many workers suffer from fatal respiratory illness called mesothelioma as a result of their employers’ negligence in protecting them from being exposed to asbestos. If you or a loved one has been harmed by wrongful asbestos exposure, it may be wise to get in touch with a skilled attorney of the Mesothelioma Resource Center. Learn more about how a member of our legal team can help you obtain both financial compensation and justice by filling out the contact form a the top of this page.
