SafetyNet 509

Welcome to the October 23 edition of the VTHC's OHS Unit's weekly journal SafetyNet. Today's is a short edition, due to a number of factors, but we hope you still find it informative and useful.

Victorian HSRs: Have you registered for the HSR Conference? It's now past the date you needed to inform your employer to get guaranteed paid leave to attend .. but it's not too late to register to come along. Deputies and others interested in OHS are welcome as well. (See below)

Please continue to send feedback (good or bad) as it helps us make SafetyNet as useful for our subscribers as possible. Please send your comments 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 in your emails.

To keep up to date and informed between editions of the journal, go to our We Are Union: OHS Reps Facebook page. Also, if you're an HSR or deputy, you should join the OHS Network Facebook
