SafetyNet 548

Welcome to the September 2, 2020 edition of SafetyNet.

Apologies for any confusion last week - the edition was mistakenly number '457' instead of ''547'! In any case, we Victorians are happy to report that the number of new coronavirus cases has dropped to under 100 all this week. We now see the light at the end of the tunnel for Stage 4 restrictions, with the government looking to announce two 'roadplans' for the easing of restrictions around the State.

In other exciting news: The biggest event of OHS Week, the VTHC HSR Conference, will be taking place in late October. HSRs are entitled to participate on paid leave so check the link below and register today!

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. If you have comments or want to send through any ideas, email us at [email protected]
