The State Department of Mines and Petroleum (DMP) has announced, in launching a dedicated work health and safety legislation reform webpage, that harmonised work health and safety laws for the Western Australian resources sector are likely to be introduced in early 2015.  It is expected that this will be a single piece of safety legislation for the resources sector in Western Australia, effectively combining mining, petroleum and major hazard facilities into one act – the Work Health and Safety (Resources) Act.
