Abstract:

This model Code of Practice applies to all types of work and all workplaces covered by the WHS Act and Regulations applying in a jurisdiction, including workplaces that are mobile, temporary and remote. It has been developed to provide practical guidance for persons conducting a business or undertaking on how to provide and maintain a physical work environment that is without risks to health and safety. This Code covers:

  • the physical work environment, such as workspace, lighting and ventilation
  • facilities for workers, including toilets, drinking water, washing and dining areas, change rooms, personal storage and shelter
  • remote and isolated work, and
  • emergency plans

This Code has been amended since its publication in December 2011, including a number of amendments agreed to in 2017 as part of a technical and usability review of the model Code. The current version, dated May 2018, incorporates all of those amendments.
