WA is a state of extremes when it comes to weather, remoteness, vast distances and rarely travelled roads so stranded drivers can be stuck for some time. Many people have died in remote locations because they did not prepare properly beforehand.

Inspectors will be set up at road train assembly areas in metropolitan and regional areas in Western Australia to check employers are complying with WA's workplace safety and fatigue management laws.
