SafetyNet 553

Welcome to the October 7 edition of SafetyNet

After nine weeks in lockdown, there are high hopes that Melbourne's residents will soon be able to get out and about more than what we have been able to do. While we are expecting this to happen over the next couple of weeks, the current restrictions have meant that there will be no commemoration event at the West Gate Bridge next week. October 15 2020 marks the 50th anniversary of one of Australia's worst industrial incidents.
