This model Code of Practice is a revised version of the National Code of Practice for the Prevention of Falls in Housing Construction (2010), updated to reflect the requirements under the WHS Act and Regulations applying in a jurisdiction. It has been developed to provide practical guidance for persons conducting a business or undertaking on how to eliminate, or if that is not possible, minimise the risk of falls from height in housing construction.


This Code should be read in conjunction with the model Code of Practice: Managing the Risks of Falls at Workplaces and the model Code of Practice: Construction Work.


To have legal effect in a jurisdiction, the model Code of Practice must be approved as a code of practice in that jurisdiction.
