A company who specialises in paint coatings has been fined for exposing its employees to health risks.

Newport Magistrates’ Court heard how in March 2015 Limited Specialist Paint Coatings Limited of Cardiff was refurbishing 72 metal window frames at premises on High Street, Newport. They exposed employees and others to health risks by high pressure shot blasting old lead based paint.

An investigation by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) into the incident, found that there was an inadequate risk assessment and a lack of control measures to reduce the risk of exposuring workers and others to lead.
