Remind me that it is 2012 and that the world is now well aware of the dangers of asbestos and in particular its removal.
After a decade which saw the James Hardie scandal unfold through judicial inquiries, community campaigns and the company's directors ending up in court surely there can be no doubt the community expects the highest standards from any company that has a reason to deal with this deadly product.
Well down at Barangaroo - presently Sydney's iconic construction project - the developer Lend Lease seems to be living in the past when it comes to dealing with asbestos.
A few days ago, after the discovery of asbestos in waste material, the company was ordered by NSW Environmental Protection Authority to stop removing waste
from the site.
The company has form on the issue - unions have constantly raised concerns about asbestos and its removal since the project began.
Barangaroo is a project which all stakeholders hope will be a model for best practice in areas such as training, skills development, project management and of course occupational health and safety.
On the asbestos issue Lend Lease has made a very poor start.
