SafetyNet 545

Welcome to the August 12 edition of SafetyNet - from Melbourne: week 2 of a six-week Stage 4 lock-down.

There is a lot of activity in workplaces which are still able to operate under our Victorian restrictions: COVID Safe Plans, Permitted Worker Permits, and much more, that HSRs need to be involved in. The number of new cases in Victoria announced today was 410 - lower than last week, but an increase in yesterday's 322. 

Make sure you stay informed in between editions of the journal by visiting 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.
