OHS on to asbestos case

SAMPLES of asbestos discovered in the ceiling portion of the Nasinu Secondary School boys' dormitory have been taken by the Labour Ministry OHS officials for examination.

School principal Poe Keleivunatoka said repairs in the two closed dormitories were in progress.

"Students from afar are still being accommodated in the remaining dormitories while those who have relatives along the Suva-Nausori corridor are still being accommodated there while waiting for the remaining dormitories to reopen," he said.

"Once repairs are completed, everything will be back to normal and the students will return to their respective dormitories."

The discovery of asbestos material has prompted the closure of the boys' dormitory at Nasinu Secondary School late last month.

Nasinu Town Council special administrator Mosese Kama said asbestos was detected by the council's environment health inspectors in the ceiling portion of the dormitory in December.

"These buildings were constructed some time back in 1982 by the then Public Works Department and according to the principal of the school, these materials are to be removed."
