SafetyNet 499


Welcome to SafetyNet! With Renata returning to work this week, SafetyNet is back at full speed. You may notice things look a little different. On the back of our new website launch, we're just figuring out a few final teething problems, which is why this issue is a few days late. There will be a second issue this week (hopefully!)

There was a fatality last week, bringing the total for the year to 21 deaths.

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 through to Renata at [email protected], but don't hit reply, start a fresh email! 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. The Part 2 of our special 2 part series live show on stress at work went to air last week, and it was very interesting. So if you missed it, are an HSR or deputy and would like to take a look, you should join the OHS Network Facebook
