A WORKSAFE probe into the contamination concerns at the CFA's Fiskville training college has been delayed indefinitely.
The watchdog missed a deadline on Friday to respond to a complaint about unsafe levels of toxins on the site and in the water used during hot fire training.
It is believed WorkSafe responded to the complaint after it was revealed the matter would be raised by a Labor MP in state parliamentary Question Time today.
A letter from WorkSafe to the United Firefighters Union, seen by the Herald Sun, said the Fiskville issue was too complex to complete investigations in the three-month period required under the Occupational Health and Safety Act.
UFU secretary Peter Marshall said WorkSafe had not contacted any members he claimed had the evidence from onsite tests highlighting the alleged breach.
"In this whole time, WorkSafe haven't asked for a meeting, they haven't asked to see the documents which back up the complaint," he said.
"Activity has continued in the meantime at Fiskville. WorkSafe is the only statutory authority we can go to with complaints about possible breaches of the Act - they're not doing what they've been paid to do."
