Herbicide use investigation

We're investigating the use of a herbicide used by the former Hydro-Electric Commission (HEC) and applied by employees from the 1960s to 1980s.

The herbicide was used to spray vegetation underneath powerlines. We've identified a small number of people who came into contact with the herbicide during routine work practices at this time and we're in contact with them to provide information and assistance.

Who do I contact?

If you'd like further information or believe you may be one of the affected employees, visit the WorkSafe Tasmania website in the first instance or call them on 1300 366 322
