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. 

We invite feedback on the journal - this helps us to ensure that SafetyNet is as useful and interesting for our subscribers as possible. Please send your comments through to Renata at [email protected].  We welcome all and any comments.
