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.
This information is designed to help WA organisations and its workforce (including volunteers) prepare for the new Work Health and Safety laws. More information will be added as it becomes available.
