Safety forum for WA

Thursday, 07 September, 2006

WorkSafe WA is calling for Registrations to the 2006 Perth Work Safe Forum, which will take place on 25 October.

The safety regulator is expecting a high level of attendance, given that last year's forum attracted 650 participants, which was up from 500 the previous year.

"Each year the forum gets bigger, reflecting the importance placed on keeping people safe and healthy at work," WorkSafe Commissioner, Nina Lyhne said.

The Work Safe 2006 Forum is presented by WorkSafe WA, the Commission for Occupational Safety and Health and WorkCover Western Australia.

The event coincides with Safe Work Week, which is held throughout Australia from 22 to 28 October.

"The Perth Forum will cover a range of issues and give participants the opportunity to network with others interested in workplace safety," Lyhne said.

Speakers at the event will include the WorkSafe Commissioner, WorkSafe inspectors, Commission Chair Tony Cooke, DOCEP principal labour relations advisor Kristin Berger and speakers from RiskCover and WorkCover.

"The key objective of the day is to exchange information and ideas on occupational safety and health issues," Lyhne said.
