MOD censured and contractor fined for asbestos breaches

The Ministry of Defence were given a Crown Censure after failure to follow advice in an asbestos survey. Together with their facilities management contractor, Interserve (Defence) Limited, they allowed workers to enter a boiler room known to be contaminated with asbestos.

A year previously, the report recommended access to the boiler room at a base in Oxfordshire be restricted until the material had been removed. Interserve were ordered to pay fines and costs of around £51,000.
