HSE Investigate Welsh Hospital re Asbestos Exposure

 

Up to 30 maintenance staff could have been exposed to asbestos at Bronglais Hospital in Aberystwyth, say health officials.

Hywel Dda Health Board said it was trying to trace former workers and was offering screening tests.

The board said asbestos had not entered public areas and patients and visitors were safe.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is conducting an inquiry into the “management of asbestos”

an management asbestos survey is the standard survey used to locate, as far as reasonably practicable, the presence and extent of any suspected asbestos containing materials that could be disturbed during normal day to day occupancy, including foreseeable routine and simple maintenance works. However, any demolition, maintenance, upgrading or refurbishment works that will disturb the fabric of the building will also require an area-specific refurbishment/demolition asbestos survey carrying out prior to the works commencing.
