MONROE - Federal U.S. Department of Labor investigators cited Monroe Clinic for violating workplace health standards in December after they found the facility did not provide sufficient protection from asbestos exposure, a determination the Monroe facility says it will challenge. Investigators from the Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration found that Monroe Clinic made 12 different health violations after an inspection in June. According to a news release from the Department of Labor, the clinic failed to provide basic protective standards such as personal protective equipment and decontamination sites, nor did it provide medical surveillance of employees or inform workers of the presence of asbestos in the facility.
