bulletOne of the implications of the Case and the decision is that it was not acceptable for Telstra to fail to supply the information that had been requested . Telstra has since moved to try to set up mechanisms to prevent access to information. They have done this by interposing another company to "manage the building services. This has made it extremely difficult to even try to obtain the maintenance records of the air-conditioning system. For more than 2 years I as OH&S representative have been denied the ability to even look at the air-conditioning system. 
bulletThe expense to which Telstra has gone in this matter to deny information and deny communication is incredible especially in a communications company. It would be clearly cheaper just to have the ducting cleaned once every three or four years. It is even more difficult to understand as the space is leased. I would have believed that under leasing conditions it would be the landlord who was normally responsible and I and other OH&S reps should be being supported to ensure the best possible work place.
bulletI have made the point to the head of Telstra care that I am trying to save the, money and lawsuits in the future. In the USA California has instituted the Indoor Toxic Moulds Act. The famous Erin Brokovic personally won a reported $18m lawsuit in this regard and I have reports of many similar multi-million dollar cases in the USA. The Telstra Care reply to me has been " but the climate is different here".
