West Lothian Council fined for asbestos breach

At Livingston Sheriff Court West Lothian Council was fined £3000 for breaching health and safety legislation during and in preparation for work on the permanent electrical installation of Uphall Primary School. It was also admonished on two charges, and not guilty of three others.

Although the presence of asbestos in tiles elsewhere in the school had been noted, the Council inspection prior to the contract had failed to identify the presence of asbestos on the back of the classroom ceiling tiles, and these had been broken up as work progressed.
