SafetyNet 535

Welcome to the June 3 edition of SafetyNet. Winter started with a bang this week - it seemed to rain all day in Melbourne at least. This would have meant that unionised construction sites probably closed down, with little work being able to be done safely in such conditions.

Not unexpectedly, we got lots of queries from workers in the education sector last week - but lots of others too.  So remember that if you need any assistance or advice on hazards or conditions at work or at home, contact your union, or send in a query through our 'Ask Renata' facillity. Also, remember that everyone at the VTHC is still available to answer queries and help in any way we can.

To keep up to date and informed between editions of the journal, go to our We Are Union: OHS Reps Facebook page. If you have any questions or need any advice, we can be reached via the Ask Renata facility on the website or through the closed OHS Network Facebook page.
