The West Australian Department of Mines and Petroleum has launched a safety series focused on helping identify hazards on site.
The DMP’s Resources safety Division has developed the ‘Know Your Hazards’ video series to help workers identify potential hazards and to reduce the severity and frequency of workplace accidents.
“If hazards are not recognised or understood, supervisors and workers will not be taking appropriate precautions to eliminate them or reduce the risks,” DMP Resources Safety executive director Simon Ridge said. “This is why we have produced a series of short educational videos to assist workers to understand the concepts behind some common hazards encountered in the resources industry.”
