SafetyNet 563

Welcome to the first edition of SafetyNet for the new year, 2021.    

The OHS Unit has recently returned to 'base', the Trades Hall Council in Victoria St, Carlton South, after almost a year working from home. Let's hope that the number of infections in Victoria and the rest of Australia remain under control, and we can all return to what's now being called a COVID-Safe normality.  

We regret to inform our readers that there were two work-related fatalities in the past two weeks.

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]
