No staff 'exposed' say Score Group after firm served asbestos improvement notice

Score Group has said no staff were “exposed” to asbestos particles after the firm was served with an improvement notice by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

HSE claimed Score failed to provide adequate training, information and instruction relating to working with asbestos.

It is understood an item containing asbestos was received from an offshore installation at Score Group’s Glenugie Engineering Works base.

The notice claimed that lack of training and knowledge of working with the substance did not allow staff to “safeguard themselves and others”.

The Peterhead firm immediately complied with the notice and has taken appropriate action.

Conrad Ritchie, Score Group managing director, said his firm gave the HSE “full cooperation” during the resulting investigation.

He added: “At no point during the job in question were any staff members exposed to airborne asbestos particles, upon receiving the item in question and following our declaration and suspicion that asbestos may be present our policies were followed, including our full cooperation during the investigation.

“Any remedial actions have been agreed and actioned.”
