SafetyNet 497

With Renata still on leave, you're about to experience the joy of yet another SafetyNet issue from Sam. I tell you what, I'm really starting to miss my mate Renata!

Importantly, we're having a launch party for the new OHS and Injured Workers Support Network websites on the 14th of August. It's a big win that's really worth celebrating. RSVP here:

This week, a new silica standard has been handed down from SafeWork Australia - and it leaves a lot of workers unsafe, and a lot of reasons for us to keep fighting for a safer one.

As always, your feedback helps to keep SafetyNet as useful for the OHS Network as possible. If you have any feedback on this week's edition on SafetyNet, please send it straight on to Sam at [email protected]. Love it or hate it, we want to know about it. So don't hesitate to send your thoughts through.

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.
