BHP considers options over fatalities

Mines and Petroleum Minister Norman Moore met senior BHP Billiton executives today to discuss the company's response to recent fatalities at its iron ore operations in the Pilbara.

"The company has advised the state government of a range of measures it will implement to address this alarming and unacceptable situation regarding worker safety issues," Mr Moore said following the meeting.

"The Government will seriously consider these proposals over the weekend and I will be in a position to make a full response early next week.

"The company has been very co-operative and clearly recognises the importance of the problem and the Government's expectations of them."
