Works notification

 

17 March 2020

Dear parents/carers,

Upcoming repair works at Wyong Public School will require the removal of asbestos containing material. Testing

conducted by an independent hygienist has confirmed that the material is bonded asbestos, which means it is

attached to other material such as cement or vinyl and cannot be crumbled by light pressure.

This material will be removed in accordance with the Department of Education’s Asbestos Management Plan and

SafeWork NSW regulations. All work will be completed by licensed and accredited removalists, and monitored by

occupational hygienists in strict accordance with all applicable legislation, regulations, policies and guidelines.

The material is scheduled to be removed on Saturday 21 March 2020. No asbestos containing material will be

removed during school hours.

Testing will be completed to ensure the site has been fully remediated. We will keep you informed if further

material is found which requires removal.

The health, safety, and well-being of the school and the local community is our highest priority. Please be assured

that the removal of this material will not pose a risk to the local community.

Thank you for your cooperation during this work.
