The WorkSafe Plan is a standardised audit tool organisations can use to assess their health and safety management. It can be used to identify gaps and areas for improvement, and also facilitates comparison to other businesses.
If desired, dependent on the assessment outcome and injury rates, WorkSafe Plan certificates of achievement may be awarded by WorkSafe to organisations who have an assessment completed. Organisations that achieve a certificate, are listed on the WorkSafe website, something that can be a useful tool for both internal or external recognition of sound health and safety management.
Those people who have management responsibilities in a business have legislated obligations to ensure that they give due diligence to managing the hazards of the business. These obligations effectively exist in both the OSH Act 1984 (the current WA OSH legislation), and in the Work Health and Safety Act (the current legislation for Commonwealth agencies and soon to be applicable for all WA businesses). Completing quality health and safety audits (such as a WorkSafe Plan Assessment) is a significant action toward achieving these obligations.
In accordance with the Public Sector Commissioners Circular: OSH in the WA Public Sector 2018-03, all WA Public Sector agencies are required to complete an assessment of their health and safety management system using a recognised audit tool (such as the Work Safe Plan Assessment) at least once every 5 years. Meeting this requirement is one of the minimum requirements for agency annual reports 2018 to 2020.
