“This includes providing information on safety and health in general industries, mining, dangerous goods and resources, notifying industry of hazards and their risks, and critical incidents and informing industry about inspectorate activities.

“It will also play an important role in notifying readers of upcoming safety events run by the department and offers another channel for feedback.”

The new magazine introduces the new WorkSafe Western Australia Commissioner, Mr Darren Kavanagh, and provides an update on modernising WA’s workplace health and safety laws.

The magazine also includes features on silica dust exposure, asbestos in the built environment and what is required in a health and hygiene management plan.
