SafetyNet 523

Welcome to the March 11, 2020 edition of SafetyNet - it's a slightly shorter edition (due to Victorian public holiday on Monday and some low-level illness in the unit!)

It has been a tragic two weeks in Victoria, with three workers killed since our last edition on February 26. Every death is preventable and no worker should be killed at work.
