Firm fined over asbestos removal

9th February 2012

A building company in Bradford-on-Avon has been fined after it removed an asbestos insulation board ceiling in a way that left workers and residents at risk of exposure to asbestos fibres.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) told Chippenham Magistrates' Court that D B Construction (West Wilts) Ltd carried out unsafe work while refurbishing a house in Bradford-on-Avon between November and December 2010. The company pleaded guilty to breaching Regulation 5 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2006 and was fined £7,000 with £3,617.50 in costs.
