Asbestos Task Force Still Has Some Work To Do

An independent taskforce organised by the Labor party at the peak of asbestos recent Telstra Asbestos concerns, will reportedly be incorporated into  the new Asbestos Safety and Eradication Agency.

Taskforce chairman Geoff Fary remarked that there remained  “a lot of work” for it to do.

Fary has contacted  Employment Minister Eric Abetz to discuss the plan.

He said that despite the changes still to come to NBN , “for the foreseeable future there will be a lot of work for the independent taskforce” as NBN cabling continued to be rolled out.

The asbestos task force was established in June by former workplace relations minister Bill Shorten and former communications minister Stephen Conroy  after reports emerged that poor safety measures were being practiced at some of the Telstra’s pits.

Also established was a taskforce for a “hindsight” review,to review all asbestos-related work carried out by project workers.
