Working together to get WHS right
In 2022, Western Australia experienced a significant number of changes to its work health and safety (WHS) landscape. New legislation came into effect which more closely aligned WA’s WHS laws with those seen in other states.
We know that WA employers want to do the right thing by their workers but sometimes just don’t have the support or resources available to navigate their way through the system.
When big changes like those we have seen as part of the WHS reform take place, it’s a timely reminder to refresh your knowledge and make sure your business is compliant, so that both you and your workers are safe in the workplace.
Here you can find the practical advice, guidance and resources you need to get employment right, including:
- Free eLearning Resources on WHS laws in Western Australia
- Free webinars on the new work health and safety laws
- Free information sheets and more to come

Free WHS Webinars
We recently finished a series of free webinars on the new work health and safety laws in Western Australia. You can still watch one for free right here.
The Work Health and Safety Act (2020) and Regulations (2022) have replaced WA’s previous Occupational Safety and Health Act. This new WHS Act is the framework to protect the health, safety and welfare of all workers at work and of other people who might be affected by work.
The new laws bring vast changes for the continuing obligations of organisations, executives, workers, and associated penalties.
During each session, topics covered include:
- Duty obligations of the Person Conducting a Business or Undertaking (PCBU)
- Duty obligations of Workers
- Due diligence obligations of Officers
- Penalties for Workplace fatalities – Industrial Manslaughter and Category 1 offences
- Snapshot of the new WHS Regulations
