John Holland exposes workers to asbestos on West Gate bridge

Published: 21 Sep 2018

John Holland knew their West Gate Bridge maintenance site was likely contaminated with asbestos for 2 weeks, but they kept people working. Only when the CFMEU intervened did John Holland send workers home, they hadn't even notified WorkSafe!

The hygienist report John Holland was sitting on detected asbestos in 9 samples taken and said "further asbestos may be present beneath the surface layer".
