Unions to Submit Asbestos Report on Telstra Site

Workplace safety watchdog Comcare verified reports that it is looking into various issues at the Telstra pits.

Federal Communications Minister, Stephen Conroy, and companies heading the $37.4 billion National Broadband Network (NBN) out of Tasmania  are poised to receive  a report on asbestos issues related to the construction project .

Communications, Electrical and Plumbing Union (CEPU) official David Mier recalled that approximately 85 per-cent of contractors working in asbestos ridden pits, lacked the necessary safety training.

Mier stated the lack of training by NBN co-contractor Visionstream, have left the pits exposed and liable to endanger lives.

He called for a stop-work order for the pits and ducts for areas where workers had not completed Asbestos Training courses.

Network builder NBN Co claims to be awaiting further details from the union as to whether or not the asbestos dangers exist on its sites.
