Was tossed out of the insulation business by the Federal Government with his dodgy company Queensland Statewide Insulations
Look what the national newspaper "The Age" said about him in February 2010 after the Government BLACKLISTED his company
Now.BLACKLISTED insulation operators are continuing to trade under the federal government's $2.7 billion ''pink batts'' program despite appearing on the government's list of deregistered installers.An Age investigation has found at least two insulation operators have been offering the government's rebate of up to $1600 per household since being deregistered last month.It has prompted the government to conduct an investigation into the breaches, including writing to the companies involved for an explanation.Both Queensland State Insulation and Monash Insulation immediately offered to remove the offending material from their websites after being contacted by The Age yesterday. Advertisement It comes as another of the federal government's emissions-saving initiatives, the Green Loans program, designed to provide household energy assessments, is beset by allegations of mismanagement, poor training and a system that is unable to cope with the demand.Prime Minister Kevin Rudd unveiled the home insulation program aimed at 2.7 million Australian homes last February as part of the government's $42 billion stimulus package.The program has been dogged by claims of rorts and malpractice. This week a fourth insulation installer was killed in Queensland while he was trying to crawl out of a manhole in the roof.The government's tougher regulations requiring supervision of untrained or unskilled employees come into effect next week.This week consumer advocate Choice conducted a ''shadow shop'' of Queensland State Insulation and Monash Insulation. Both offered to provide the insulation with the government rebate.''The department says that there are rigorous registration processes, so we are really curious to know how this could even happen,'' said Choice spokeswoman Elise Davidson. '
'The fact the website is still up, the phones are still being answered and that they are still offering the rebate is of great concern.''Putting insulation in your roof is one of the most cost-efficient ways to make energy efficiency savings in your home. We think the success of the scheme is really important, there just needs to be some more follow-up in terms of the deregistration process.''Smiley Sansoni, director of Famore Business Brokers, which owns Queensland State Insulation, said the company had been deregistered because a government audit found it had received rebates to install insulation in three homes but the service wasn't provided.''We use subcontractors and they subcontracted further and then walked away and didn't do the job,'' he said. ''No percentage is acceptable but three out of 3000 homes is a small number. We probably didn't have as good quality assurance as we should have at that time and I guess it fell through the cracks.''Yesterday afternoon the Queensland State Insulation website was reduced to one line: ''In light of recent events we are modifying the website to reflect current conditions and hopefully have the website up within 72 hours.''Tim Horvat, managing director of Monash Insulation, said the company was challenging its deregistration through its lawyers. He offered to remove the advertising from the website.''We are in the middle of a court process against the Australian government. We should not be advertising it and I am going to give [the web administrators] a call as soon as we finish speaking and get them on to it,'' he told The Age.Monash Insulation's website became unavailable late yesterday.A spokesman for Environment Minister Peter Garrett said: ''Every installer is on notice. Break the rules and we will take action the government will not hesitate to make changes or respond to issues to ensure effective program delivery and particularly ensure that safety is the top priority.''The spokesman said anyone who suspected any wrongdoing could call the government hotline on 1800 808 571.
