These Codes of Practice are guides for how to achieve compliance with the WA WHS Act and Regulations. They are produced to help Persons Conducting a Business Undertaking (PCBU) and Officers meet their obligations and duty of care requirements under the Work Health and Safety Act and Regulations – however, a Code of Practice may not cover all hazards or risks present.
Hazards and risks will vary across different occupations, works undertaken and places of work. A Code of Practice cannot replace the individual assessment of risk or hazard and the development of a Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) where needed.
Compliance with the WHS Act and Regulations may also be achieved by following another reasonably practical method that supplies an equivalent or higher standard of work health and safety than the applicable Code of Practice.
PCBU and Officers within the residential building industry may receive help from further understanding of the new and replaced Codes of Practice listed below.
It is important to remember that there are other existing Codes of Practice that may continue to apply to you, your work and/or place or work.
Until further notice, WorkSafe continue to reference AS 3610 -1995 Formwork for Concrete and AS/NZS 4576 – 1995 Guidelines for scaffolding as approved Codes of Practice – however, these Standards can be viewed (only) at the WorkSafe library or by buying these Standards from a provider.
