Renovation Exposes Workers to Asbestos in San Antonio: OSHA

OSHA has cited the employers for willful exposure.

OSHA announced it has cited three commercial real estate renovation firms for allegedly exposing workers to asbestos at a residential apartment work site in San Antonio. FBZ Broadway LP and Roscoe Properties Inc. were each cited for one willful violation for failing to determine the location and quantity of asbestos. One Eighty Construction was cited for one willful violation for failing to ensure that workers followed asbestos removal practices.

"This commercial building renovator is responsible for protecting workers from asbestos hazards and failed to do so, despite previous citations for asbestos exposure. There is simply no excuse for continuing to expose workers to this danger," said Alejandro Porter, OSHA's area director in the San Antonio Office. "Exposure to asbestos can lead to lung disease and cancer years after initial exposure."
