23 New safety codes of practice released

28 July 2022

A series of 23 Work Health and Safety codes of practice came into effect on Friday 15 July. These codes have been adapted for WA work health and safety environments from the Model codes of practice published by Safe Work Australia.

Approved codes of practice provide the standard to identify, assess and control hazards and are developed through consultation with unions and employer organisations.
