raftl THATS WHAT YOUR THERE FOR YOU SOFT B*******S!

Not giving themselves a very good name eh? raftl

Funny thing about this is their security hut is the original one for the old hospital (which was built same date) & too shall be full of asbestos raftl laugh

Listen to what fred elliot has to say, lol...



Guards strike over asbestos fears

Security guards at the site of a former mental hospital are striking over fears they may be being exposed to deadly asbestos.
Tony Edmonds, 47, a security guard at the former Whittingham Hospital, near Preston, and colleagues Pat Sherlock, Malcolm McEwan and Frank McCleave, are taking part in the strike.

They say they are being asked to patrol areas where they may be at risk of falling debris and asbestos.

They are refusing to patrol the affected areas until bosses can assure them it is safe.

The night security men, who work for Profile Security, also claim the derelict building is a target for thieves on the hunt for lead and piping.

Whittingham Hospital, which once housed 3,500 patients, is now derelict and earmarked for a housing development.

It is owned by the Home and Communities Agency (HCA), formerly known as English Partnerships.

Mr Edmonds, of Lostock Hall, near Preston, said: "There are signs up warning people about asbestos and falling debris and they obviously don't want anyone to go near it. But us guards are expected to patrol the courtyard of the hospital and the area behind the perimeter fence and we don't want to do it unless we can be assured it won't affect our health."

Mr Sherlock, 55, of Chorley, said: "The place is full of asbestos and is dangerous.

"We want to see a proper risk assessment before we patrol the areas near the building. It is also not a safe place at night as there are a lot of thieves and it is not well lit."

Phil Moseley, managing agent for former Whittingham Hospital, who works for TEP, consultants for HCA, said: "HCA has a very stringent policy on asbestos in line with current legislation.

"As part of that, there is a requirement for an asbestos management plan to be prepared for the whole site. That plan is informed by the asbestos surveys carried out by HCA consultants.

"The last survey for Whittingham Hospital was conducted in June 2008 by White Young Green.

"The recommendation at that time was that the buildings at Whittingham did have materials containing asbestos.

"The way in which we have managed that is by not allowing anyone in the building until the demolition has been completed.

"We have also closed the building off with steel shutters."

Profile Security declined to comment on the issue surrounding its security guards going on strike.
