WorkSafe WA announces dates and locations for agriculture industry inquiry
WorkSafe WA has released the dates and locations for public consultation meetings on the agriculture industry Inquiry, with the first meeting scheduled for 11 October in Albany.
The Inquiry was announced in June after the 12th death in the agricultural sector in a period of 12 months.
WorkSafe Commissioner Darren Kavanagh appointed Pam Scott to the position of Independent Inquirer to conduct the Inquiry.
“The Inquiry will consider a range of issues and recommendations on matters that affect the safety performance of the agriculture industry and have influenced the number of deaths in the industry,” Ms Scott said today.
“I strongly encourage anyone with an interest in farming or the agriculture industry in general to contribute to the Inquiry by attending a meeting, joining the webinar or making an online submission.”
Additional information on dates and locations of the public consultation meetings is available on the WorkSafe WA website.
