Reported asbestos exposures in schools

Currently waiting for a response from Health and Safety Executive, they must respond promptly and normally no later than (details).

Dear Health and Safety Executive,
Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, please provide me with the following information:

Details of all reported incidents of exposure to asbestos reported to have taken place in a school in England between 2011 and 2016. This may include details of exposure to
'asbestos' and/or 'ACMs' and/or 'AIBs' that have taken place in school premises and have been reported to Public Health England.

I am interested to receive details that include;
- the location of the exposure (e.g. the name and address of the buildings in which exposure occurred)
- number of people exposed to include adults and children (where possible please break down the data to indicate number of adults exposed and the number of children exposed)
- any action taken to reduce the risk of mesothelioma to those that have been exposed

I am interested in exposures registered with The HSE between the dates 1st January 2011 and 31st December 2016.

I understand that under the Act I am entitled to a response within 20 working days of your receipt of this request. Some parts of the request may be easier to answer than others. Should this be the case, I request that you release information as soon as possible.

If my request is denied in whole or in part, I ask that you justify all deletions by reference to specific exemptions of the Act. I will also expect you to release all non-exempt material. I reserve the right to appeal your decision to withhold any information or to charge excessive
fees.

I would prefer to receive the information electronically.

If you require any clarification, please contact me in accordance with your duty under Section 16 to provide advice and assistance if you find any aspect of this FOI request problematic.

Please acknowledge receipt of this request by email. I look forward to receiving the information in the near future.

Yours faithfully,

Lucie Stephens

Dear Health and Safety Executive,

Hi Peter,
Thanks for your email. Just to confirm there is a typo in my request. I meant to ask for information about instances of exposure reported to HSE not Public Health England as the original letter says.

Yours faithfully,

Lucie Stephens
