SafetyAtWorkBlog will be reporting from the biennial Congress of the Australian Council of Trade Unions. For the first time Trade unions have been pivotal for the creation and enforcement of occupational health and safety (OHS) around the world.
Most of the past reporting on these events in mainstream media has focused on politics and industrial relations. OHS tends to get overlooked so SafetyAtWorkBlog’s attendance will be important.
Articles from the Congress will be available only to Subscribers.
The congress will include sessions on
- #MeToo: Stopping Violence Against Women Through Union Action
- The Future of Work
- Occupational Health & Safety: Every Workers Right
- Global Solidarity to end Asbestos Use
The congress has an awards night on July 17, 2018 at which Opposition Leader Bill Shorten will be speaking but media has been excluded from attending that event.
