Work Health and Safety Act progress

The Commonwealth, New South Wales, Queensland, the Australian Capital Territory and the Northern Territory have now enacted the provisions of the Model WHS Act ready for commencement from 1 January 2012.(Safe Work Australia)

Three further Codes of Practice have been agreed to as part of the harmonised work health and safety laws, subject to final technical and editorial changes:

* First Aid in the Workplace
* Managing Risks in Construction Work
* Preventing Falls in Housing Construction

These codes will become model codes when approved by the Ministerial Council.
