Radiation Contamination

The request was successful.

Dear Ministry of Defence,

I have worked at Dara Almondbank in Perthshire (Now Vector Aerospace) since 16th August 1999. As of yesterday, 12th December 2011, there are stories all over the local and national news that the site I work on has levels of radiation. This follows on from other sites in Scotland being mentioned. Most notably Dalgetty Bay.

I don't know what this means to me and my health as Management have not yet issued a statement to the workforce. This has been very distressing to learn from media sources that my health may be at risk. The little information I have heard discussed is that when my site was the Royal Naval Aircraft Workshops, there was some radioactive material, possibly gauges and paint burried.

What levels of radiation are we talking about here and can the MOD find out for me? The workforce are surely entitled to see any reports, or Coshh and Risk Assessments pertaining to their health, safety & wellbeing?

Yours faithfully,

Alan James Sweeney
