One Fatality Every Three Weeks in WA

Graham Marshall - Thursday, September 05, 2013
WorkSafe in Western Australia has reported on new figures which demonstrate that one West Australian worker dies every 21 days as a result of a work related accident

Statistics compiled between 2008 and 2013 showed 5,350 workers suffered very severe injuries in total, with at least one fatality occurring every three weeks.

At the Risk Tool Box, we know that all of those accidents could have been prevented if the hazards were correctly identified and managed. 

Effective hazard management is essential to your safety and the safety of those you work with. 

Do you know how to identify, assess, and control  workplace hazards?

As the Worksafe statistics clearly demonstrate, workplace accidents occur every day. 

But most accidents are  preventable, particularly when the correct hazard management process is used.

For many years now, the Risk Tool Box has been at the forefront of equiping workers with the knowledge and skills to apply the hazard management process to assist in managing risk and maintaining an injury-free workplace.

Our training courses are modular and aimed at any individual who may be exposed to hazards in their workplace.

On completion of our course, workers are able to:

1. Define the Hazard and Risk Management Process;

2. Identify hazards and assess triggering factors;

3. Understand incidents and the potential consequences which could occur when things go wrong;

4. Select and implement controls using the hierarchy of control;

5. Monitor and review controls, ensuring that emergency situations are quickly dealt with; and

6. Record the results of the hazard management process using hazard spotting or JSA.
