The state’s work health and safety regulator, SafeWork SA, said it met with the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation and SA Health following the inspection and is now conducting its own inquiries.
A Central Adelaide Local Health Network (CALHN) spokesperson said it was working to address the immediate concerns as well as the short and medium-term building issues.
Services at the unplanned pregnancy centre, such as abortions and post-abortion support, would still be provided until alternative locations are confirmed, they said.
“We are currently looking at alternative locations to relocate staff and are continuing consultation with staff, consumers and stakeholders,” a CALHN spokesperson said.
