Asbestos exposure leads to HSE investigation

A property developer put his workers at risk by failing to identify the presence of asbestos before allowing them to start work on a nightclub in Wrexham. An asbestos survey was never commissioned.

A Health and Safety Executive (HSE) investigation found that the property developer had failed to have an asbestos survey carried out to the property prior to work  commencing. This led to the unlicensed and uncontrolled removal of the asbestos-containing material and its subsequent spread in and around the building. He was given a suspended sentence of eight months for breaching the Control of Asbestos Regulations., a 12 month suspended sentence for breaching Section 33 (1)(c) of the Environmental Protection Act 1990, and eight months suspended sentence for the offence contrary to Regulation 19 of the Hazardous Waste Regulations 2005. He was also ordered to carry out 200 hours of community service and to pay costs of £10,000 over two years.
