SafetyNet 599

Welcome to the October 27 edition of SafetyNet. 

We regret to inform subscribers that another Victorian worker has been killed at work this week: an electrician was electrocuted on Tuesday October 26. 

Our annual HSR Conference is being held tomorrow - with over 1100 HSRs, deputies and others registered to attend. For those who were unable to register, we will be loading up the materials and the presentations on our website over the coming weeks. 

Due to the Conference this week, the Melbourne Cup public holiday on November 9, and RDOs, there won't be an edition of SafetyNet next 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]
