An unlicensed asbestos removalist has been convicted and fined $13,250 for arranging unlicensed asbestos removal, his second offence in two years.
In November 2010, Geelong-based Joshua Luke Marshall, operating as Affordable Demolitions and Asbestos Removals, told a renovation company he was licensed by WorkSafe to carry out asbestos removal at an Anglesea property, although he didn't hold a licence.
In the Geelong Magistrate's Court today, Mr Marshall was convicted and fined under the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations 2007.
Another incident, leading to a prosecution on 30th May occurred weeks two after he was prosecuted a first time, for similar offences.
For that matter, Mr Marshall was convicted on two charges and fined $35,400 after a WorkSafe inspector caught him doing unlicensed work.
