Contractor asbestos supervision 'not sufficient': Telstra

Stephanie McDonald | June 24, 2013
Telstra has directed contractors to improve asbestos handling procedures after a review by the telco found deficiencies in the way the fibrous material has been treated during the remediation of its pits and pipes.

However, Cranswick previously said NBN Co should take some of the responsibility for the asbestos mishandling issue.

He said while Telstra should have had greater managerial oversight on how to handle asbestos instead of just "reacting" to it, "I think this is quite simply a human error of quite large managerial proportions".
