SafetyNet 514

Welcome to the December 4 edition of SafetyNet.

Well, we did it! With the hard work of families, unions and their members and many other people, we now have Industrial Manslaughter legislation in Victoria. The Bill went through the Upper House at almost midnight last Tuesday - see below for more details.

Tragically, the same week the legislation passed, three Victorian workers were killed.
