The Freedom of Information (FOI) Act 1992 provides members of the public with the right to apply for access to the majority of records held by State Government Agencies. WorkCover WA complies with the Freedom of Information Act 1992 and has included its internal FOI procedures in the Freedom of Information – Information Statement.
Some sensitive documents, or parts of documents, may be exempt from access. The Act’s exemption provisions protect from disclosure material that, if released, would have a detrimental effect on the functioning of Government or harm the interests of private individuals or commercial organisations.How to make an application
