SafetyNet 549

Welcome to the September 9 edition of our weekly journal SafetyNet. 

We are still in Stage 4 lockdown in metropolitan Melbourne - and will be for at least another two weeks. We are hating it, but this virus is insidious and if we don't want another, third outbreak, we need to get it under control.

Remember to register for the biggest event of OHS Week, the VTHC HSR Conference, in late October. HSRs are entitled to participate on paid leave so check the link below and register today! DHSRs are welcome too, but need to square their attendance (and payment) with their employers. See details below.

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]
