How can we reduce serious injuries in the WA mining industry?

The WA Department of Mines and Petroleum has issued a report analysing serious injury data in the Western Australian mining industry between July and December 2013 in order to identify opportunities for improvement.

Injury Report
It made the following recommendations:
• Improved hazard identification and risk assessment
• The development of principal hazard management plans (PHMPs)
• The use of written work procedures for all critical tasks
• Supervision and observations to ensure compliance with procedures
• The pro-active involvement of workers in safe work system development
• Improved training of workers and supervisors in procedures and processes
• Improved site induction and familiarisation in the early months of employment
• Adequate breaks during the shift to reduce the potential for human error.

These probably apply to all industries.  Assetivity can assist in a number of these areas, contact us now to find out how Assetivity can help you reduce injuries in your organisation.
