Letter issued to job seekers re asbestos for activity ID 1507-7131 (contract ID 0206026A)

David Curtin made this Freedom of Information request to Department of Jobs and Small Business

The request was successful.

From: David Curtin

Delivered

Dear Department of Employment,

As the Host Organisation for the work experience activity (activity ID: 1507-7131 under contract ID 0206026A), I request a copy of the letter issued by the Department of Employment to job seekers assigned to the project, regarding the asbestos complaint lodged by a job seeker. (name can be provided)

An informal request for a copy of the letter was lodged through our Salvation Army contact and has since been declined.

Salvation Army and the Department of Employment have both been issued with an independent report from Safe Surveying Services (SSS) who completed a site specific Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM’S) management survey throughout the Keep Queensland Beautiful premises located at 30 Thomas Street, West End.

The independent report indicated that work carried out in the garden (external to the building) was of a low risk and could remain in-situ, with no immediate health risks.

As the CEO of Keep Queensland Beautiful, I require a copy of any and all correspondence in relation to this matter to file for historical purposes, as to fulfill obligations relating to our duty of care.

I can be contacted by email or on my mobile - contact information provided.

Yours faithfully,
David Curtin
Chief Executive Officer
Keep Australia Beautiful Council (Qld) Inc. trading as Keep Queensland Beautiful

Dear Mr Curtin,

 

I refer to your below email to the Department of Employment (the

assigned to the project, regarding the asbestos complaint lodged by a job
seeker.

 

We understand that you have discussed this matter with Ms Rina Bruinsma of

Accordingly, I am writing to seek your confirmation that you are happy to
withdraw your request for access under the FOI Act.

  

Should you have any questions in relation to this matter, please do not
hesitate to contact me on (02) 6240 2425 or via email at

Good afternoon Mr Curtin

 

I refer to your correspondence received by the Department of Employment
(the department) on 25 September 2014, in which you requested access to a
document under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (Cth) (FOI Act).

 

As per our conversation yesterday afternoon, I understand that a copy of
the document has been provided to you outside of the FOI process, and
therefore you no longer wish to proceed with your above mentioned FOI
request.

 

Accordingly, I am writing to confirm that your request under the FOI Act
is now withdrawn.

 

Please do not hesitate to contact me on (02) 6240 2425 if you have any
questions.

 

Yours sincerely
