Worker in court after asbestos exposure

A supervisor in charge of removing asbestos from a Canterbury school boiler house has been prosecuted after he recklessly exposed himself to the potentially-dangerous material.

The worker, then a supervisor with a Medway company licensed to remove asbestos, was spotted working unprotected at the site at Canterbury Academy in Knight Avenue on 30 May 2013 by an inspector from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

The worker was seen walking around inside the sealed enclosure without wearing his essential respiratory mask, and with the hood of his protective overalls down. A second worker could be seen removing the asbestos materials but with the correct personal protective equipment in use.

HSE prosecuted the worker at Canterbury Magistrates’ Court today (20 May) after investigating the incident.
