Asbestos

A Hertfordshire based care provider engaged in construction works, has been fined after it admitted unsafe working practices, including failure to remove asbestos materials from the old buildings before demolition work. 

 

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) received a complaint in March 2014 from a member of the public living close to the former hospital site on Hospital Hill, Chesham, Buckinghamshire concerning activities going on at the premises. 

Upon attending, HSE inspectors noted the former Chesham Community Hospital buildings had been partially demolished by a contractor. However, on enquiring with the client, Chesham Care Ltd, it was discovered that removal of asbestos containing materials (ACM’s) had not taken place prior to demolition.
