SafetyNet 632

Welcome to the 20 July 2022 edition of SafetyNet. 

We are pleased to note that there have been no new workplace deaths reported since the last SafetyNet. 

This week the Ombudsman announced that they will commence an investigation into WorkSafe self-insurers. More information can be found in the Union News section of this SafetyNet. 

This edition also features some news of prosecutions, international news and some international research into automation. We hope you find this week's edition useful and interesting. Feel free to share it and please encourage others in your workplaces to subscribe.
