Company fined £24,000 for ignoring improvement notice

DM Accident Repair Centre Limited of Neath, an accident repair company, was been fined £24,666 (inc.costs) after it failed to comply with an improvement notice.
The circumstances were:
  • The company had been using a spray booth to spray isocyanate paints, and the spray booth had not been inspected by a competent person.
  • The company had a routine inspection by an inspector from the Health and Safety Executive from which an improvement notice was served. 
  • The owner, who had been uncooperative, failed to comply with the notice, 
  • This was despite several efforts by HSE staff to explain the need for compliance and how to comply.
