Motueka company fined for mismanagement of asbestos removal
Motueka company Bays Boating Ltd was fined $108,000 at the Nelson District Court on 7 February after a WorkSafe prosecution for the unsafe removal of asbestos.
It says Bays Boating Ltd began demolition work in August 2018 on a building known to have asbestos in both its roof and walls, without safely removing the asbestos it first.
“When it comes time to renovate or demolish buildings where asbestos may be present, people need to remember they are required to have an asbestos removal control plan in place, or they run a very real risk of exposing workers and members of the public to harmful asbestos fibres”.
