Air Quality And Safety Issues Cause Health Staff to Vacate

Quality and Safety TrainingApproximately 80 staff members of the ACT Health Directorate were required to vacate the city centre in Canberra after being informed of air Quality and Safety concerns.

Staff have resituated themselves from the Moore Street office to a former emergency services office located in Curtin.The cause of the problem is currently being investigated; however a lack of ventilation in the faulty air conditioning system might be to blame.

Access to the closed off area is currently prohibited but there are no health concerns currently associated with people attending appointments on the first four levels of the Moore Street building. The Directorate director has stated that the issue continues to be a top priority as is the health and safety of the staff.

There is no evidence to indicate that the problem exists in other areas of the building, however an air quality assessment has been allegedly requested.
