Our Brand

Work Health & Safety Foundation (WHS Foundation), originated from the Industrial Foundation for Accident Prevention (IFAP) in March 2022.

Established in 1972, IFAP stood as Western Australia’s sole not-for-profit occupational safety and health provider for five decades. Throughout this time, it served the local community, delivering essential safety and health education and training services.

Now, rebranded as the WHS Foundation, we uphold the foundational values of our previous identity while directly aligning our operations with the new Work Health and Safety (WHS) legislation in Western Australia. Evolving into a broader provider, WHS Foundation aims to cater to a broader spectrum of work health and safety needs across various sectors, including business, industry, government, and the not-for-profit realm.

Recognised as a registered charity by the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC), WHS Foundation is committed to advancing safety and health initiatives in workplaces throughout Western Australia.
