Welcome to the West Australian Branch of the Safety Institute of Australia. As the largest state in Australia and the centre of the mining and resources boom, health and safety is an important part of the industrial landscape.

We currently focus much of our activities around Perth, but are always looking to support members in regional and remote areas, especially if they wish to set up networks in their area.

The Branch has a series of sub committees and groups that do their part to create an annual events program incorporating a state conference as well as training and networking events, write submissions to government on key health and safety policy, and engage in partnerships with organisations that share our vision.

No matter your level of experience, if you’d like to know more about how to get involved, contact us.

The WA Commitee Members are: Dr Marcus Cattani (Branch Chair), Nathan Winter (Treasurer), Brendan Green (Secretary), Kym Bills, Simon Roberts, Adam Parsons, Lauren Neville, Celia Antonovsky, Andrew Clarke, Richard Barna, Melissa Allsopp, Cameron Stevens, Andrew Chandran and Deepak Maru.
