Local contractor cited for alleged unsafe handling of asbestos

The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has cited Seaview Homes for alleged asbestos violations.

On Sept. 18, DEQ issued a civil penalty of $11,200 to Seaview Homes LLC of Newport for allegedly conducting a demolition and renovation in June 2015 without first having an accredited inspector survey two facilities for asbestos. The DEQ says the violations occurred at 520 NW Alpine St. and 426 Coast St. in Newport. DEQ officials said they issued the penalty because the violation could have released asbestos fibers into the air and exposed workers and the public to asbestos. Asbestos fibers are a respiratory hazard proven to cause lung cancer, mesothelioma and asbestosis.

DEQ says asbestos is a danger to public health and a hazardous air contaminant for which there is no known safe level of exposure.

The company has until October 23 to appeal the penalties.
