Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?





Asbestos testing firm in Wisconsin facing stiff fine from OSHA

An asbestos testing service provider based in Poynette was recently accused of committing 13 safety violations after five of their employees fell ill while working in a nursing home facility, a report of Channel 3000 stated on October 19.

Agents from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reportedly discovered that A&A Environmental Services committed serious violations while their workers were renovating a nursing home in New Glarus. Workers in the area likely came into contact with high levels of carbon monoxide (CO) and asbestos, OSHA said. Reports revealed that the workers were not qualified to do the jobs because they were not trained in working with such hazards. If proven guilty of multiple violations, A&A will need to settle $243,716 worth of fines. OSHA has given them 15 days to either argue or settle the fine imposed on them.

Toxic minerals, such as asbestos, can cause serious illness to workers. If you believe you developed mesothelioma from asbestos exposure, a legal counsel should represent you. Fill out the contact form on the top of this page to learn more about your legal options.
