UCATT forces action on asbestos

Regional Secretary Nick Blundell says that asbestos waste left stockpiled on a housing development site in the Vale of Glamorgan was removed only after UCATT complained to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Members working at the site reported the problem to the Regional Office after they became concerned that building rubble containing blue asbestos was not being stored correctly prior to its removal from the site. They were concerned that workers as well as members of the public could be exposed to asbestos fibres. A licensed waste contractor cleared away the asbestos following UCATT’s action.
