WorkSafe WA is currently undertaking an assessment of the benefits and cost of implementing the harmonised Work Health and Safety legislation. WA is one of four jurisdictions that have not yet adopted the new harmonised WHS Act and Regulations. WorkSafe is encouraging workplaces to participate in a consultation process to determine the impact of the proposed legislation by:
- completing an online survey;
- making a written submission; and/or
- attending a consultation session in a regional centre or in Perth.
As a third party, Marsden Jacob Associates (MJA), has been engaged to conduct the assessment. The consultation process will close on October 12th, 2012.

If you have any questions regarding the harmonisation process, please call Safebound on (08) 6102 5400.
