Important information regarding access to the ALC
Recent excavation works in the plot of land next to the Australian Liquidity Centre has identified an issue that requires your attention. For clarity this is not work that is being conducted by ASX and is not on land occupied by ASX.
The site builders have advised us that soil testing has found traces of asbestos within the fill and will implement its asbestos management controls during excavation. Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral and can typically be found in rock, sediment or soil. This is not uncommon at building sites.
While there is no reason for concern, ASX wants to let you know what actions the site builders will take so you are appropriately informed should you plan a visit to the ALC in the near future.
The introduction of asbestos management controls is a fairly normal procedure which will see the building company:
-install ‘asbestos removal’ signs to the site boundary
-site workers will wear protective overalls
-dust mitigation measures will be in place
-air monitors will be installed on the boundary and checked daily
ASX has engaged a specialist consultant to conduct our own monitoring and assessment to ensure ongoing customer and employee safety.
Should the current assessment change in any way ASX will swiftly update on that information.
