Complying with Safety Legislation

Managing safety and health is as much a part of running a business as managing your finances, marketing and sales. A safe workplace has many benefits including reducing accidents, meeting legal and contractual obligations, and avoiding business disruptions and potential fines.

This workshop is for people who are ready to launch a business or new product to market or are business owners interested in learning more about safety legislation and requirements.

This workshop covers:

  • Western Australia’s workplace health and safety legislation
  • How to implement safety practices within your business
  • How to access and evaluate information on workplace health and safety
  • Safety management systems
  • Safety certification requirements
  • How to do an internal safety review of your business.

This session is facilitated by Mark Small, a safety professional of 15 years. Mark is a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Health & Safety and an Exemplar Global certified Lead Auditor for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems. He has worked in a variety of safety related roles and has much knowledge to impart to the small business owner regarding safety considerations.
