This report provides a response to 8 workshops conducted for the Resources Safety Division of The Department of Mines and Petroleum in Western Australia (“Resources Safety”) as part of the 2010 Roadshow which ran throughout October and December in Newman, Tom Price, Karratha, Bunbury, Kalgoorlie and Perth. The focus of the workshops was “toughness” in workplaces in the mining industry and the wider resources sector (“the industry”). The report includes an analysis of participants’ contributions in the workshops and the author’s recommendations for how Resources Safety can contribute to driving improvements in mines safety through a focus on gendered behaviours.
