What does "Registerable Plant" mean?
Under WA’s new Work Health and Safety Act 2020 and the Work Health and Safety (Mines) Regulations 2022, which came into effect on 31 March 2022, the term “Classified Plant” has been replaced with “Registerable Plant”. The new WHS Act and accompanying regulations combine WHS for general industry, mines and petroleum and geothermal operations under a single Act, replacing the previously applicable Mines Safety & Inspection Act 1994 and the associated Mines Safety & Inspections Regulations 1995.
Registerable Plant is defined as any boiler, crane, hoist, lift or pressure vessel. This includes fixed and itinerant plant-like elevating work platforms (EWP), pressure vessels, bridge and gantry cranes, mobile cranes, lifts and hoists, vehicle hoists, monorails, mancages, and boilers.
Work Health and Safety (Mines) Regulations state that you must register with the Department of Mining and Petroleum Resources Safety all Registerable Plant.
