The RiverSea Hostel in Mosman Park and the Bethanie Adult Day Care Centre in South Perth received the awards from WorkSafe WA for their safety management practices.
Platinum Certificates are designed to recognise organisations that achieve the highest standards in the areas of management commitment, consultation, hazard management and training.
