SafetyNet 626

Welcome to the June 2, 2022 edition of SafetyNet.

Yesterday VTHC celebrated Injured Workers Day - a day to fight for the rights and dignity of injured workers.

Injured Workers Support Network members met with Bronwyn Halfpenny, Parliamentary Secretary for Workplace Safety then after lunch attended a seminar on issues relating to workers' compensation and OHS.

Congratulations to all injured workers who participated with goodwill in defiance of miserable weather
