This Workshop Planner Series on Gender and Safety in Mining (Workshop Planner Series) responds to a number of cultural and human behavioural issues relating to gender that affect safety on mine sites. The series has been developed in response to participant feedback in workshops involving resource sector employees throughout Western Australia. These workshops were conducted as part of the 2010 Mines and Exploration Safety Roadshows hosted by the Resources Safety Division of the Department of Mines and Petroleum. The roadshow workshops explored the notion of “toughness in mining”.
