Work Health and Safety Act progress

Posted By David Jacobson On December 13, 2011 @ 5:57 am In Workplace | Comments Disabled

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 [1])

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.
