A property service company, based in London, has been fined £165,000 and ordered to pay £19,000 in carbon monoxide poisoning compensation after a successful prosecution by the UK Health Service Executive.

Apollo Property Services Group Limited was found guilty of breaching section 3(1) of the Health and Safety etc. at Work Act 1974 after an examination into work carried out on the Abbey Road Estate in Camden, London, during which seven residents were medically treated for carbon monoxide poisoning.

The firm carried out the repair work on the roof of the estate in February and March 2008; however it was discovered that they did not have an adequate system in place to identify which of the boiler flues were still in use and the work went on without any inspection being made.

Residents who suffered because of the company’s negligence will now be sble to claim carbon monoxide poisoning compensation in private civil claims.
