Recently, a Philadelphia contractor was found guilty of violating the Clean Air Act. Not only did Anthony Biello II neglect to notify the Environmental Protection Agency and the Air Management Services in the City of Philadelphia that he was removing asbestos from a Philadelphia church in 2009, he forged documents that indicated that he received approval for the job.
Asbestos is a dangerous substance that can cause a world of trouble within the human respiratory system. Any exposure to asbestos fibers are dangerous, and if prolonged can lead to fatal diseases over time. It is the job of asbestos removal contractors to keep their employees and clients safe - but what happens when they knowingly put others at risk through their work?
