SafetyNet 635

Welcome to the 10 August, 2022 edition of SafetyNet. 

Sadly, one workplace death has been reported since the last SafetyNet. 

A man died in a workplace accident in Wollert on Friday afternoon. It’s understood the man was fixing a tipper truck when it fell on top of him around 2PM. The identity of the man has not yet been released and Worksafe are currently investigating.  

We send our sincere condolences to family, friends and colleagues of the deceased. This workplace death was preventable. A Victorian worker did not return home to family and friends, as they should have. This marks the first Victorian worker to have died at work in August. Mourn the dead, but fight like hell for the living. 

We hope you find this week's edition useful and interesting. Feel free to share it and please encourage others in your workplaces to subscribe.
