WA Government seeks feedback on new WHS regulations

The Western Australian (WA) Government is seeking feedback on proposed new work health and safety (WHS) regulations. The WA Government is proposing three sets of regulation to support the proposed new WHS Act, including regulations for general industry, the mining sector and the petroleum and geothermal sector, with many general industry laws also applying to the other two industries.

Union Right of Entry provisions will remain under the state’s Industrial Relations Laws, as per the wishes of industry and worker organisations, according to the WA Government. To help people understand the proposed changes, the government has developed a consultation package and will deliver information sessions across the state throughout September.

Information session locations include Perth, Albany, Esperance, Karratha, Newman, Geraldton, Mandurah, Kalgoorlie, Broome, Port Hedland, Midland and Dongara. Feedback can be submitted via email or mail at WHS Reform, Locked Bag 100, East Perth WA 6892, including a cover sheet, until Tuesday, 26 November 2019.
