The following concerns are raised regarding demolition activity at 102 Northbourne Avenue, Braddon:
1. Unsafe building practices
No fall protection has been installed on demolished apartments. See below photo of construction worker washing out apartment without fall protection. Ground is slippery from washing out building materials and there is nothing to stop him falling three storeys onto concrete ground.
There seem to be no spotters on the excavators – Also no exclusion zones have been provided for high risk activities.
2. Concrete Dust
Demolition activities are generating high amounts of cancer causing concrete dust. This is passing into neighbouring properties (including Clifton swimming pool area) and other neighbouring carpark area.
There has been no notification of asbestos removal from the site to neighbours. Concern that asbestos is still within the building – should neighbours be notified and given the opportunity to leave the area during removal of asbestos?
Evidence of graffiti on walls within upper floor apartments. We are concerned that adequate security measures are not in place to keep the general public out of this highly dangerous worksite.
