Notice 309496431 served against City of Edinburgh Council on 17/12/2018
Notice Type Improvement Notice
Description As an employer you have failed to ensure that you did not carry out refurbishment work, namely the removal of the asbestos fire breaks and the replacement of the suspended ceiling which was liable to expose employees and others to asbestos at Buckstone Primary School without first carrying out a suitable and sufficient assessment as to whether asbestos, what type and in what condition was present in the roof void spaces including but not exclusively on the steel columns in this CLASP construction type of building (which are commonly known to be built using a substantial amount of asbestos) because the refurbishment asbestos survey is inadequate in that it does not conclude if asbestos is present or was likely to be disturbed by such refurbishment work and therefore you may not have prevented the exposure to asbestos to employees and others because you may not have taken the measures necessary, including work processes to avoid or minimise the release of asbestos during this work therefore did not ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health at work of your employees or persons not in your employment who may be affected by the conduct of your undertaking
