Asbestos exposure can lead to mesothelioma, which is a deadly cancer. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has stated that, in general, the greater the exposure to asbestos, the greater the chance of developing harmful health effects. Because of the hazardous nature of even the shortest of exposures, and the possibility that symptoms may not appear for years, it is important for victims to turn to an experienced asbestos personal injury attorney expert here at the Law Offices of Gilbert R. Hoy, Jr. and Affiliates to help guide them through the complicated litigation process inherent in these cases.
A Portsmouth, New Hampshire construction worker recently filed a complaint with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) claiming that he and other workers were exposed to asbestos and mercury at Eversource’s Schiller Station. The worker is employed by Manafort Brothers, Inc., where he said: “employees are not adequately protected while removing materials containing asbestos and mercury.” Since allegations of regulatory violations and health hazards have been made, OSHA requested that Manafort Brothers, immediately investigate the alleged conditions and make any necessary corrections or modifications.
According to the Manager of Media Relations for Eversource, Martin Murray, the company has requested that Manafort Brothers, begin to dismantle retired equipment that had been in place at Schiller Station. The work was taking place within a sealed, contained zone and everyone at Eversouce has been made aware by Manafort that OSHA received an anonymous complaint regarding the potential of mercury and asbestos exposure. Since the notification of the complaint, Manafort has stopped work and hired more health and safety experts and consultants to review working conditions and take action.
