Olivet Management, LLC, a New York real estate management company, was recently fined over $2.3 million for knowingly exposing its employees and contractors to asbestos and lead hazards during cleanup operations in preparation for potential investors touring one of its properties.

An OSHA inspection found that the company failed to take basic safety precautions by neglecting to tell neither its employees nor its contractors about the presence of lead and asbestos, despite knowing the hazards existed.

The exposure not only endangered the health of workers, contractors, and work site visitors, but also their families.

Olivet was cited for 45 willful violations, 24 of them relating to exposure to asbestos and lead hazards.
