ASBESTOS has been discovered at a college in Rhos on Sea.
Coleg Llandrillo bosses have issued a number of instructions to staff working in its Cinmel block on its Rhos on Sea campus after the toxic material was discovered during a routine survey.
A statement from the College says: “As part of their preparatory work in refurbishing the Cinmel block on the Rhos-on-Sea site, the College was advised, as a matter of routine, to survey the building for asbestos.
“A report from specialist consultants showed that while the majority of the building is totally asbestos-free, some areas do contain some traces of asbestos.”
Air quality tests revealed there were no health risks in any areas of the Cinmel block and the College was working with a specialist company to develop a short term management plan.
It will also be informing staff how to maintain a “safe and healthy working environment in the affected areas”.
However one staff member, who wished not to be named, remained concerned at the discovery.
