WorkCover WA officers recently visited Busselton, Margaret River and Dunsborough to conduct inspections and provide education.
They conducted 120 compliance checks over the three days, and 47 businesses required further investigation. Nine of those businesses had not held workers’ compensation insurance for more than two years, and were referred for prosecution.
Avoiding these penalties is easy, just ensure you have a current workers’ compensation insurance policy.
