SafetyNet 492

Welcome to this week's edition of SafetyNet.  It is with great sadness that we report that there has been another farming fatality in Victoria since the last edition.

A heads up: Renata will be on leave until mid August, so the next few editions will be done by Luke and Sam, her OHS Unit colleagues.

We invite comments on any of the issues covered - just send an email here. (Please don't 'reply' to your email). If you have a story or an issue you would like covered, contact us as well. It's always a pleasure to get feedback.

And the usual reminder: to keep up to date and informed between editions of SafetyNet, go to our We Are Union: OHS Reps Facebook page, and for those who are HSRs and/or passionate about health and safety, join the OHS Network page, a safe place to raise and discuss issues: check it out and ask to join.
