Coventry hotel charged with health and safety breaches

9th February 2012 | Warning Signs

A hotel in Coventry has been ordered to pay over £50,000 in fines and costs following a number of health and safety errors.

Among the dangers seen at the Talash Hotels premises were unfinished flooring, exposed wiring and broken glass, while a fire exit was also blocked by scaffolding on a staircase, reports the Coventry Telegraph.

These errors may encourage businesses to review the safety of their premises and implement warning signs if necessary.

Andrew Burton, prosecuting, told Coventry Magistrates Court: "There was a continued lack of management in relation to health and safety. The business continued to disregard safety, and put people at risk."

Mr Burton explained that there was no separation between where work was taking place and the hotel's staff and guests.

While the Coventry hotel has been criticised for its safety standards, the Press and Journal has reported that Aberdeen company Capita has collected two health and safety awards for its occupational health service.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801288259-ADNFCR
