Agricultural Industry Inquiry

Following the 12th fatality in 12 months in the Western Australian agricultural industry, WorkSafe Commissioner Darren Kavanagh established an Inquiry and appointed an Independent Inquirer.

The Inquiry report into the agricultural industry in Western Australia and WorkSafe’s response has now been released.

WorkSafe plans to work with industry stakeholders, worker representatives and peak bodies to further drive work health and safety improvements in the sector, in line with the recommendations provided in the Inquiry Report.
