Australian Workplace Safety Codes of Practice

Graham Marshall - Tuesday, May 08, 2012

Interested Australians are encouraged to have their say on five new OHS model Codes of Practice that were recently released for public comment.

The OHS Codes released for public comment are:

 Safe Design, Manufacture, Import and Supply of Plant;

 Working in the Vicinity of Overhead and Underground Electrical Lines;

 Traffic Management in Workplaces;

 Scaffolding Work; and

 Formwork and Falsework.

Businesses, industries, workers and the wider community are encouraged to take this opportunity to contribute to work health and safety issues that directly affect their workplaces and their working lives.

This is the third set of Codes of Practice developed to support the WHS Act and Regulations.

They are part of a suite of documents being developed by Safe Work Australia, the Commonwealth, states and territory governments as part of harmonised work health and safety laws across Australia.

Harmonised laws aim to achieve the best possible approach to safety for all Australian workplaces.

The public comment period for these Codes of Practice will close on 22 June 2012.
