Department of Mines & Petroleum release a new series of safety videos

November 2015

The Department of Mines & Petroleum (DMP) Annual Roadshow for 2015 was rolled out in both regional and metropolitan centres in October, with a focus this year on risks associated with Working at Height.

The program consisted of an update on the WA serious injury study, along with two videos – the first focusing on technical aspects of a fall from height scenario and how easily injuries can occur from a seemingly low height; to the second video, which looks at three individuals impacted by a fall from height, from an injury through to a fatality. The personal consequences on family and friends following a significant incident were generously shared by those directly affected.
