On average 4,000 people every year die in the UK due to Asbestos related activities – 25 per cent have worked in the building, maintenance and repair trades at some time during their working lives.

To target the problem, officers from the Commercial Team in Environmental Services at East Cambridgeshire District Council and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) will be carrying out targeted inspections of businesses within the District in the next few weeks.

Seven people in East Cambridgeshire have each been fined £200 plus costs for failing to return their canvass form despite being requested to complete the form over ten times in the past two years.

In each case, the District Council sent a canvass form out in August 2008, which was then followed by three visits from a canvasser during October 2008 with a blank canvass form being left at the property on the third visit. This process was repeated in 2009 and Officers also wrote three letters to each defendant before they were finally sent a summons.
