Kwinana Industries Public Safety (KIPS)
Safeguarding the Community, Employees and the Environment

In 1991, a number of major Kwinana industries formed a mutual aid group to provide a forum which was focussed on joint industry emergency response and public safety.

In 2002, this structure provided the basis for the establishment of the Kwinana Industries Public Safety group (KIPS) with the aim of providing a similar cooperative approach on issues relating to community and employee safety and the environment.

KIPS was set up through the Kwinana Industries Council in conjunction with a range of key stakeholders including:

  • Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES);
  • WA Police;
  • State Government regulatory authorities;
  • Local Councils; and
  • Community representatives.


KIPS was designed to address the need for a cooperative and effective approach to managing public safety in the Kwinana Industrial Area, as well as providing a mechanism for companies to meet their own obligations under the requirements of both the WA Occupational Safety and Health Act and the requirements of the National Standard for Major Hazard Facilities.

KIPS evolved from two years of development, consultation and review and is a genuine attempt by Kwinana industries at ensuring the long-term safety and well being of our local community.

Tests of Emergency Alarms/Sirens

As part of industry's commitment to workplace health and safety, and a safer community, several companies in the Kwinana industrial area conduct weekly tests of their emergency alarms/sirens.

The installation and testing of the alarms/sirens is an integral part of the Kwinana Industries Mutual Aid (KIMA) scheme that has been established by the companies to share emergency response expertise, manpower and resources in the event of a major incident.
