A Northeast Kingdom antipoverty group didn’t tell employees that one of its St. Johnsbury facilities contained asbestos and failed to address fire and trip hazards, exposing workers to health and safety risks, according to a state investigation that concluded in May.

Northeast Kingdom Community Action, a nonprofit that provides social services in the region, paid nearly $3,500 in fines this year for violations at its 115 Lincoln Street building, records from the Vermont Occupational Health and Safety Administration show.
