When do the new WHS laws come into effect?

WA’s Work Health and Safety legislation is not expected to come into force until January 2022. This means that the current occupational, mines safety and petroleum safety legislation still applies.

Under the Work Health and Safety Act 2020 licences, permits and registrations are collectively known as Authorisations.

Authorisations are required for the use of some plant and substances, and certain types of work.
