Hospital trust failed in their Asbestos Management duties
19 January 2013
The HSE has recently issued a press release regarding a hospital trust failing in their duties in regard to asbestos management.
An investigation by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) found that City Hospitals Sunderland NHS Foundation Trust had an asbestos survey that clearly showed there was asbestos in the door surrounds but, despite several site meetings between the Trust and the contractors, no information on the location or condition of any asbestos was given to the contractors.
