SafetyNet 536

Welcome to the June 10 edition of SafetyNet. For most of us it has been a short week, with Monday being the 'Queen's Birthday' public holiday. Unfortunately there was another fatality in Victoria since our last journal. 

Most school students are back at school in Victoria this week, so more questions from the education sector. If you need any information 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.
