WorkSafe reminds workplaces to prepare for cyclone season

With the onset of the cyclone season, and Cyclone Narelle expected to cross the North-West coast this weekend, WorkSafe has requested workplaces on land and sea to be become familiar with emergency/contingency plans. The threat of cyclones can’t be underestimated and a coordinated effort must be made particularly when  different companies work at the same site which is common practice up North.

All workers must be made aware of evacuation strategies on land or safe havens for sea craft for protection of lives and equipment. A reminder of past deaths in recent years from inadequate action is referenced by WorkSafe in this article…
