The City of Salem Faces a Lawsuit Over Improper Asbestos Removal at a Demolition Site

Improper asbestos removal at a demolition site in Salem, Massachusetts led to a lawsuit filed against MRM Project Management, its principals, and a contractor. The lawsuit, filed by the Massachusetts Attorney General’s office, said the company is responsible for cutting corners with asbestos removal laws which led to contamination at the site.

The demolition of several buildings on an industrial property before August 2016 left asbestos contamination in debris piles and the air. Workers hauled off the contaminated debris from the site in cardboard barrels. 

Exposure to asbestos for long periods of time sometimes leads to serious health effects, such as mesothelioma, asbestosis, or lung cancer. It is not uncommon for industrial sites to contain the toxin throughout buildings and equipment. Industrial workers are among the most at risk for exposure in the occupational setting, especially after improper asbestos removal.
