How is Western Power addressing the changes in work health and safety legislation?
The new work health and safety (WHS) legislation was passed through Parliament on the 10 November 2020, which requires an increased focus on how we consult, coordinate and monitor the safety and health risks with our contracting partners. The regulations will become law on 31 March 2022. Western Power is reviewing and refreshing our Contract Management Framework (CMF) and will be communicating with relevant suppliers and holding a dedicated forum on the changes to the CMF, including WHS. Refer to the work health and safety factsheet for further information.
