Demolition firm in court after stripping asbestos insulation board without a license

A Portsmouth demolition firm faced criminal charges in court on 31 March 2014 after stripping more than 50 metres of potentially-deadly asbestos board without a license and potentially putting workers at risk.

The firm was prosecuted by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) after Inspectors carried out a routine visit to a small site under development in Fareham, Hampshire.

Portsmouth Magistrates’ Court was told the company, which specialises in site preparation, had been hired to undertake a ‘soft strip’ and other preparatory tasks before construction work started.

HSE discovered the firm had illegally removed 54 metres of asbestos insulation board from a bungalow that was due to be refurbished despite it not holding a licence to remove asbestos containing materials (ACMs).
