Apprentice Meet Up: BBQ in the Park

After so many months, we're getting together for a catch up in the park!

Earlier this year, workers from different industries came together to tackle what we knew was going wrong in apprenticeships. Too often, apprentices are working for cowboy employers with no regard for safety regulation, who make up their own rules and put their employees in danger.

We started the conversation about what studying a trade should be like - that we should be able to expect to learn a trade properly, be safe at work and come home in one piece.

As lock down eases, we're ready to jump back in to having that conversation with more apprentices, and to call for the changes we want to see to make apprenticeships safer and fairer for everyone!

Join us for an apprentice meet up in the park to meet everyone, hear about the campaign and celebrate being able to get together. 

Where: Royal Exhibition Gardens, Carlton [a 10 minute walk from Melbourne Central Station]

When: 1pm Sunday 28th November 

What to brng: We'll put on a BBQ and drinks - feel free to bring a picnic rug, frisbee, footy etc

This is a COVID-safe event and will be dependent on the public health restrictions in place. Numbers will be limited, so RSVP to make sure you can be there!

Ensuring COVID Safety in the Workplace

What do I need to know about vaccination directions in my workplace? What is a COVID-Safe plan? What are the changes in isolation requirements if I, a co-worker, or a staff, tests positive for COVID-19?

 

The COVIDSafe Workplaces Team and the Multicultural Centre for Women’s Health, are hosting an online information session for the Filipino community on Ensuring COVID Safety in the Workplace, to help you answer all these questions!

 

When: 4 December 2021, Saturday, 7:00PM – 9:00PM (AEDT).

Where: Zoom - Online

 

 

 

The Victorian Department of Health and Florence from the COVIDSafe Workplaces team will discuss updates and answer questions related to COVID-Safe behaviours in workplaces, COVID-Safe plans, what to do if a worker tests positive, changes to contact tracing procedures and isolation requirements.

 

You will be sent a registration link via email once you RSVP for the event.
