Upcoming upgrades to toilet facilities 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 asbestos 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 27 June 2020 and Sunday 28 June 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 contaminated 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 important work.
