SafetyNet 525

Welcome to the March 25 edition of SafetyNet.

Sadly, another Victorian worker was killed in the last week. 

This week's journal will be dominated by coronavirus (COVID-19) related news. As more and more restrictions are introduced, we must not forget OHS.

Many people are now working from home, including the OHS Unit at the VTHC. However, we are still available to answer queries and help in any way we can. As we face extraordinary conditions and challenges due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the message from us is "we're all in this together". Take the necessary precautions to stay safe and not panic. Social distancing is now a must.

Many of you will have questions - we can be reached via the Ask Renata facility on the website or through the closed OHS Network Facebook page. 

To keep up to date and informed between editions of the journal, go to our We Are Union: OHS Reps Facebook page
