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

This code of practice provides general guidance for all commercial fishing industry vessels in WA on the management of occupational safety and health issues relevant to the prevention of and response to man overboard incidents. While there are systems of work considerations in relation to eliminating and reducing the risks, this code's focus is on general safety and health issues relevant to man overboard events. Users of this code will need to look at their operation and its level of risk in relation to man overboard, as this code does not deal with every situation that may be found on commercial fishing vessels. Capability, operations, situations, equipment, machinery and tasks vary and hazards and risks not referred to in this code may arise requiring controls other than those recommended in this code.
