Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The new Work Health and Safety Act 2020 (WA) (WHS Act) and associated regulations are anticipated for proclamation in March 2022.

The new WHS Act will have three sets of regulations as of 1 January 2022:

  • General
  • Mining
  • Petroleum and Geothermal

The enclosed PDF provides a high level overview of the WHS Act and various obligations arising under it.  This represents a significant departure from the existing WHS laws in WA.

A number of clients have been taking steps to prepare current operations for the commencement of the new WHS regime.  We would be happy to discuss this further with you.

If your organisation requires any further information about the WHS Act, or the associated regulations, please do not hesitate to contact Daniel Hill.
