A Kent education trust and a local contractor have been fined for failing to obtain a refurbishment and demolition survey during work to the Hundred of Hoo Academy near Rochester, Kent.
The school academy, run by The Williamson Trust was having refurbishment work undertaken by Mark Tucker when an asbestos register, which identified the location of known asbestos in the school, was not consulted. This, together with the lack of an asbestos survey, left the contractors without adequate information to carry out the work safely. However, the work continued in the building after asbestos was disturbed and fines have been issued to both companies.
