Hawaii Cites Hotel for Exposing Workers to Asbestos Hazards

Hawaii

The Hawaii Occupational Safety and Health Division issued eight citations and $66,013 in penalties to Hyatt Corporation after determining that workers performing maintenance and demolition activities on a hotel were not informed about asbestos handling, personal protective equipment, and good work practices. The employer was cited for failing to conduct periodic safety inspections, and failing to train workers on asbestos hazards and proper use of respirators.
