Posted: June 2, 2009

On Sunday, March 15th, J. Brent Kynoch, President of Kynoch Environmental Management, was quoted in the article “Smithsonian and 27-Year Employee in Battle Over Asbestos” which appeared on the front page of The Washington Post. According to the article, Richard Pullman, a lighting specialist who has worked at the National Air and Space Museum for 27 years, learned that there was asbestos found in the drywall joint compound used on the walls throughout the museum. A few weeks later, Pullman filed federal workplace safety complaints, as he had been drilling into these walls for many years. KEM performed testing throughout the museum and KEM’s results indicated that the asbestos in the National Air and Space Museum had been mishandled, likely resulting in exposure to workers and the public.
