Asbestos removal company owners accused of jeopardizing health of employees
A father and son are facing possible jail time over accusations they repeatedly and knowingly exposed workers to asbestos.
Mike and Shawn Singh are accused of repeatedly breaching court orders to comply with WorkSafeBC rules, overexposing workers to the deadly material.
Back in 2013, the Singh’s company Seattle Environmental Consulting, was fined $15,000 over asbestos-handling violations.
The latest incidents are alleged to have happened since then.
“I’ve seen first hand, death associated to asbestos exposure, and I can’t understand why any employer in the province of British Columbia would continue to expose workers and the public hundreds of times after they’ve been told to cease and desist,” said Lee Loftus, BC Insulators Union business manager.
