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.
