When the South West Industry Road Safety Alliance was formed in 2008, it was the first private-government road safety approach of its size and scope that had been undertaken in WA. Alliance partners including BHP Billiton Worsley Alumina (now South32 Worsley Alumina), Newmont Boddington Gold, Synergy, WA Police, Main Roads, Office of Road Safety (now Road Safety Commission), WALGA and Shires of Collie, Boddington and Harvey created one of the largest collaborative approach towards the improvement of road safety on the notorious Coalfields Highway in our South West.
This webinar illustrates how this collaborative group took control of its road safety destiny within their region, and how the success of this alliance footprint is now being replicated in other regions of WA and across the world.
Presenting this webinar will be Simon Dent. Simon is the South32 Worsley Alumina Port Operations Superintendent in Bunbury, and also manages the emergency response and asset protection for the refinery facilities in Collie. Worsley has approximately 1800 employees and 600 permanent contractors.
Simon was a founding member of the inaugural Industry Road Safety Alliance in Western Australia.
