The subcontracting process continues its way.

25/08/2014


Concerning the asbestos issue in JMO building, we just have been informed that the access to the computer room JMO CC/200 is now forbidden. However, any person who should go inside for technical and urgent issue will have to wear special disposable clothes including mask and gloves. The FFPE will keep you informed when we will have more details.

06/08/2014

What can we say about the note sent by OIL about asbestos in JMO building.?

In our opinion, it's not necessary to overreact to this subject. Did you know that the Commission wanted to move the entire JMO building in the Drosbach building when this one was built (this would have solved the case) and that it was refused by our host country? Who to blame?
Sadly, after the recognition of 3 cases of professional diseases linked to asbestos and affecting people who worked in the JMO building, the leave process is engaged. Let's hope it will go as fast as possible.
