Date: Wednesday, 06 February 2019

ThinkSafe is the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety's (DMIRS) new online publication for workplace safety and health in Western Australia.

DMIRS Deputy Director General Safety Ian Munns said that while the look, design and production of the magazine has changed, its primary aims haven't.

"The new-look online magazine ThinkSafe will play an important role in raising general awareness of safety and health issues," Mr Munns said.

"This includes providing information on safety and health in general industries, mining, dangerous goods and resources, notifying industry of hazards and their risks, and critical incidents and informing industry about inspectorate activities.

"It will also play an important role in notifying readers of upcoming safety events run by the department and offers another channel for feedback."

This issue of ThinkSafe introduces the new WorkSafe Western Australia Commissioner, Mr Darren Kavanagh, and provides an update on modernising WA’s workplace health and safety laws.

It also includes features on silica dust exposure, asbestos in the built environment and what is required in a health and hygiene management plan.

The new ThinkSafe magazine is now available online.
