SafetyNet 516

Welcome to the last edition of SafetyNet for 2019.

It's been a big year, and we've all achieved some great successes: the introduction of the Industrial Manslaughter legislation in Victoria, the reduction of the exposure standard for silica and increased regulation of dry cutting of manufactured stone, and much more. But we know we must keep fighting for OHS so that there are no fatalities and fewer workers are injured or suffer disease in our workplaces.

Renata, and the whole team at the VTHC OHS Unit wishes all our subscribers and readers, a safe and happy Christmas (if that's your thing) and a joyous New Year. See you in 2020! We're planning to send out the first edition on January 22nd.
