As Victoria’s occupational health and safety regulator, WorkSafe is ensuring the demolition work complies with safety laws and regulations.

Further demolition will not begin until Alcoa puts forward a suitable demolition plan. The plan will include provisions for future air monitoring and other appropriate health and safety measures.

Air monitoring has been in place at the site since before demolition began and has not revealed any health and safety concerns.

Due to the complexity of the work involved, further demolition is not expected to occur until July.

WorkSafe will provide a further update once Alcoa’s demolition plans have been finalised.
