In October 2017, a gas explosion where construction work had been carried out to develop a property into flats led to an investigation by the HSE. The HSE found that the development contractor, Prestige EA Ltd, failed to plan, manage and monitor construction work to prevent persons from being exposed to risks associated with asbestos. The wrong type of asbestos survey was carried out before the work so the work completed was not in compliance with the law. Prestige EA Ltd (in Liquidation) pleaded guilty to breaching Section 3 of the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 and was fined £2,000 and must pay costs of £3,000. This was a limited fine, given the insolvency.
