Asbestos removal ban

A MOUNT Gambier contractor removing asbestos materials from the Millicent Swimming Lake kiosk without the correct licence has been issued a prohibition notice by SafeWork SA.

A spokesperson for SafeWork SA told The South Eastern Times the notice has effectively put a stop to further removal work at the privately owned kiosk until an appropriately qualified removalist was contracted.

“The site has been barricaded to ensure members of the public are not at risk,” he said.

SafeWork SA said it would be actively conducting inquiries into the adequacy of procedures used for the asbestos work that had been undertaken at the Millicent Swimming
