Codes of Practice

A code of practice provides practical guidance on how to comply with a general duty or a specific duty. It describes, without being prescriptive, safe work practices that can be used to reduce the risk of work-related injury and disease.
Work practices included may not represent the only acceptable means of achieving the standard to which the code refers.


Compliance with codes of practice is not mandatory but they may be used by courts as the standard when assessing other methods or practices used.
