SafetyNet 552

Welcome to the September 30 edition of SafetyNet

We are at the end of the first month of Spring and all of us, including those in metropolitan Melbourne, are looking forward to being able to get out a little more and meet with a few more people - with the numbers of new cases of coronavirus in Victoria coming right down. But as more workers head back into work, HSRs need to remember that their employer has a duty to consult with them on the implementation of the workplace COVIDSafe plans.
