SafetyNet 515

Welcome to the December 11 edition of SafetyNet.

As we approach the end of 2019, we urge employers to ensure that they maintain vigilance in their workplaces: at this time of the year there's often a lot of pressure to get things finished before the break and this can put workers at risk of injury.

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
