Many Transgressions in Asbestos Cleanup

In 7 out of 10 controls which the Inspectorate (SZW) carried out regarding the cleaning up of asbestos, transgressions were reported. In 2012, the special team carried out controls at 391 sites. In total, 582 transgressions were found in 275 locations. In close to 50% of these cases, the transgressions were so major that the activities had to be halted, or major fines had to be paid. According to the Inspectorate, many firms transgressed the law because major amounts of money can be earned in this way.
