New WHS Legislation is coming in 2019! Are you ready? - FREE FOR MEMBERS!

Register now for this workshop for a review of the new WHS legislation and what it means to you in practical terms.

The Occupational Safety and Health Act 1984 (WA) (OSH Act) is soon to be replaced by a new Work Health and Safety Act, with the Western Australian Model Work Health and Safety Bill (WHS Bill) on schedule for introduction to Parliament in mid-2019.   The new safety regime proposed under the WHS Bill sends a clear message to individuals with influence and decision-making authority in any organisation that the existence of a safety system alone is no longer enough to satisfy their obligations.

Harsher penalties for breaches of WA’s workplace health and safety laws increased from 3 October 2018.  This included an increase in the maximum term of imprisonment from two years to five years, increased fines for body corporates, level 4 offences now attract a maximum $2.7 million penalty for first offenders and $3.5 million for subsequent offenders (up from $500,000 and $625,000 respectively); and level 1 penalties have increased from $50,000 to $450,000 for first offenders and from $62,500 to $570,000 for subsequent offences.

Practical advice will also be provided during this session, as to where to start making sure your business is compliant.  Attendees will also be able to register for a FREE desktop audit which includes a free visit to your workplace, an informal chat about what WHS documents you have and practical advice on how to improve your workplace safety.

This workshop is free for Wanneroo Business Association members. Guests are welcome to attend their first WBA workshop for free, non-members attendance following your first event will be invoiced after attendance at $30 + GST.
