SafetyNet 541

Welcome to the July 15 edition of SafetyNet - apologies for the late delivery last week: we had some technical issues, so thanks Sam for sending it out on Thursday.

Well, it's been over a week now since Stage 3 restrictions were re-introduced for Melbourne and the Mitchell Shire, and if people are feeling like me, it's going to be hard going. This edition has plenty of news of developments for workers, including VTHC advice on the wearing of masks.

Make sure you stay informed by checking out the latest news in this week's journal, and by going 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.
