SafetyNet 606

Welcome to the January 12 edition of SafetyNet.

We hope you had a safe Christmas and New Year, and are ready for the year ahead. It's going to be a big year in OHS - new psychological health regulations are expected to come into effect mid year (you'll be hearing a lot from us about that) and reforms to worker's compensation are in the works. It's also a double election year, and we all know that if we want the healthiest, safest workplaces and the strongest regulations that really protect workers, we need Labor governments. There'll be plenty of opportunity to get involved so if you haven't already signed up to the OHS Network you can sign up here.

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]
