While removing thermal insulation (which is made of mineral fibre) from Granville Estate blocks, Keepmoat Regeneration contractors have not been careful enough to dispose properly and safely the remains that have fallen down.
One can find debris of mineral fibre scattered all around estate covering also the green area, thus raising questions about the health and safety of our residents and their pets.
The Keepmoat workers have been seen wearing masks while removing the mineral fibre but no warning was issued to the residents to at least keep their windows closed.
During the weekend there were loads of mineral fibre remains scattered around and the windy weather made things worse, by blowing around the fibre that was left on Keepmoat containers.
Mineral wool products may cause temporary skin itching due to the well-known mechanical effect of fibres of coarse fibres.
