Fact sheet

This code of practice addresses issues that might potentially arise in some working hours arrangements, for example extended hours, shift work and on call work. It brings together a range of recognised workplace hazard factors that must already be addressed, as far as practicable, where there are occupational safety and health risks. This code of practice is presented as a starting point for undertaking a workplace or industry risk management process to address relevant issues where the working hours arrangements may have occupational safety and health considerations. As individual workplaces and industries have different working hours arrangements, this code of practice provides high level general guidance and recommendations on risk management. It is suggested that the risk management approach is tailored specific to the unique demands of each workplace and/or industry
