The director of a cinema has been fined after he put workers and members of the public at risk of

exposure to asbestos during refurbishment works. An asbestos survey was only conducted after the

removal of debris from the area and it was identified as being present. The director was then found

to be taking people into the building to view the ongoing works even though it was recommended

that no one should enter the building. The director pleaded guilty to breaching section 3 of the

Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 and to breaching regulation 5 of the Control of Asbestos

Regulations 2006 and regulation 16 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012. He was fined

£11,660 and ordered to pay £7,000 in costs.
