SafetyNet 643

Welcome to the 5 October edition of SafetyNet.  

Sadly two workplace deaths have been reported over the course of the week. A 65-year-old woman has died after crashing during a motorcycle training course at Somerton on Saturday, and a truck driver has died after his B-double veered off the Western highway onto train tracks, Thursday morning.

WorkSafe are investigating both deaths. We send our sincere condolences to family, friends and colleagues of the deceased.

We hope you find this week's journal useful and interesting. Feel free to share it, and please, encourage others in your workplace to subscribe.
