The Western Australian government believes that every person who goes to work deserves to come home healthy and safe.  WorkSafe, part of the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety, is committed to supporting healthy and safe workplaces for the WA community, industry and the resources sector.  In October WorkSafe highlights ways you can develop and maintain healthy and safe workplaces.

This year’s Safe Work Month featured on-demand videos, podcasts and live webinars with a focus on health and safety for both the mining and petroleum industries and general workplaces.  

The theme "WHS – think physical, think psychological” is a reminder that under the Work Health and Safety (WHS) laws psychosocial is as important as physical.
