In just a few weeks, the Morrison Government will decide whether or not to take a once in a generation opportunity to fix our work health and safety laws.
At a meeting of state and territory Ministers responsible for Health and Safety, the Morrison Government will cast a deciding vote on proposed laws that will better protect workers from sexual harassment, create national penalties for industrial manslaughter and improve rights for workplace health and safety representatives.
There will never be a more straight-forward opportunity for this Government to act to make workplaces safer.
A majority of women will experience sexual harassment in their lifetime. Almost 200 people per year are dying at work. This Government can take concrete action to address these systemic issues – they just have to vote up these proposed changes to our work health and safety laws.
Can you email the Prime Minister and tell him his Government must vote for safer workplaces for all workers?
