SPECIALIST REPORT

On 13 February 2014, an occupational hygienist employed by the fire services provided advice and resolutions regarding levels of carbon monoxide. The agreed resolutions from the fire services and the specialist did not happen and were kept secret from exposed firefighters and health and safety representatives.

Please find attached for your information letters sent from the UFU to WorkSafe, the Premier, the Fire Services Commissioner, CFA and MFB. Also attached is a copy of the occupational hygienist letter dated 13 February 2014.
