SafetyNet 562

Welcome to the December 16, 2020 edition of SafetyNet.  

This will be our last edition for 2020 - and we can all agree that it's going to be great to see the end of what has been a very difficult year. All of us at the VTHC OHS Unit wish all of you a safe and happy holiday season, and a very Happy and Joyful New Year.

For those who are working over the coming period: health care workers, emergency service workers, retail workers, hospitality workers, entertainers, and all of those who keep our city and country going - thank you. Keep safe and keep well. 

Our next edition will be in February 2021.

Visit our We Are Union: OHS Reps Facebook page for news, memes and more. 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]
