Supporting small business owners

Small businesses play a significant role in our economy, representing approximately 97 per cent of all businesses in Western Australia.* WorkCover WA is committed to supporting small business owners by keeping them informed of their rights and responsibilities in relation to workers’ compensation and injury management.

WorkCover WA will be exhibiting at the Nifnex Small Business Expo at Ascot Racecourse on Friday 8 July 2016. The Expo will showcase services that are essential for Perth small business owners to start, grow and expand their business. For further information on the Expo or to register for free click here.

WorkCover WA also regularly presents at the BizLinks seminar hosted by the Small Business Development Corporation. At this seminar, representatives from government agencies outline how they support small business owners and their rights and obligations. To view the May 2016 BizLinks presentation click here.
