Large & Costly Asbestos Decontamination
12 January 2012
Wales Online reported recently on a story that has shocked a lot of people.
The HSE were called anonymously to investigate a Welsh factory that makes knitwear for the Royal Family. The contractor, Paul Hart who is a specialist in the safe removal of asbestos, was called in to decontaminate the factory. He found "clumps and clumps" of the material - which can cause lung cancer and other serious health problems - lying around the premises of Corgi Hosiery Ltd at New Road, Ammanford.
It has taken eight men around two and a half months and cost more than £200,000 to decontaminate the building.
