SafeWA is the key to attending events in WA

As part of the WA roadmap out of COVID-19, from 5 December 2020, mandatory contact registers will be in place at venues throughout WA for ease of contact tracing and safety of event and venue attendees. Personal details will be collected to support public health efforts to reduce the risk of an uncontrolled COVID-19 outbreak in WA. Providing your contact details helps make contact tracing more efficient, if it becomes necessary and helps stop the spread of COVID-19 infection.

To support this the WA Government has developed SafeWA, a free and convenient app to safely and securely register your attendance at various businesses, events and venues. It is easy to download, safe to use and provides for contactless scanning at entry. Here’s a short video to explain how it works.

In order for Auspire to continue to deliver quality events, forums and capacity building workshops, we will be required to record all in-person attendees at our events. We too will be using the safe WA system as it is the most efficient and safe way to record your contact details when you check-in, using the app.

You can find more information about SafeWA data policy and use of your private information here.  In the meantime, please download the SafeWA app from the App Store or Google Play Store.
