SafetyNet 513

Welcome to the November 27 edition of SafetyNet.

It has been a big week - the Industrial Manslaughter Bill will be going to Victoria's Upper House this afternoon - see below.

There was no edition last week as Renata was running training, so some of the items in this week's edition are from last week, but we've included them as we think they're important for HSRs and others to know about. Again, though, this is a shorter version than usual, due to staff commitments.

Please let us know what you think about the journal - your feedback 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': please start a fresh email. We welcome all and any comments.

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
