Date: Thursday, 28 July 2016

Health and safety for Western Australian mine workers is being promoted through a new radio show on regional station RED FM, in partnership with the Department of Mines and Petroleum.

RED FM's Mining After Dark program was launched last month and includes regular reminders targeting key safety issues.

Mines Safety Director and State Mining Engineer Andrew Chaplyn said RED FM's availability across many Western Australian mine sites provided a unique opportunity to get important safety information to workers.

"The partnership with RED FM allows the department to highlight topical safety issues directly with workers in the industry," Mr Chaplyn said.

"The segments complement safety information available on our website, through our safety inspectors, and the workshops and forums currently organised by the department."

Mining After Dark runs from 1am to 4am weeknights on RED FM.
