SafetyNet 583

Welcome to the July 7 edition of SafetyNet.  

It is with great sadness that we inform our subscribers that another Victorian worker was killed in the past week - a truck driver was killed in a crash last Thursday July 1.

Those getting the journal via email will notice that instead of posting the journal on Wednesday afternoon, we are testing a different post time: first thing Thursday morning. Let us know what you think - and we'll keep an eye on 'open rates'.

In the latest COVID news: we are still doing well in Victoria, but the numbers of infections in NSW means the lockdown has been extended for at least another week.  

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]
