    Workers cite ASU building safety hazards - By RYAN GABRIELSON, East Valley Tribune, AZ
    The one time that the Arizona Department of Occupational Safety and Health conducted an unannounced inspection, it found a university building supervisor had sent his employees to tear down a roof loaded with asbestos.

    The agency initially cited ASU for a “serious” violation. But college officials negotiated that down to “non-serious” as part of a settlement deal last month.

    Before the asbestos case, the agency had declined to investigate allegations that ASU put employees at risk of exposure to mold and electrical currents and that it had leveled scaffolding using phone books and didn’t provide equipment to protect against falls.
