WorkSafe Asbestos Cement Water Pipe Management Guideline:

CCF Victoria recently placed a story in E-News about the recent implementation of the WorkSafe Asbestos Cement (AC) Water Pipe Management Guideline.

Since then, CCF has raised significant concerns regarding the implementation of this guideline with Ms Linda Timothy, Executive Direct External Services – WorkSafe Victoria. It is our understanding that a number of contracts for AC Water Pipe replacement have been put into suspension or cancelled as a result of the implementation of this guideline. We are intending to push back on this guideline to bring about a far better transitional process, and to also seek and understand the full extent of our Membership who has been affected by the recent implementation.
