Approved codes of practice

A code of practice provides detailed information on how you can achieve the standards required under work health and safety (WHS) law.

Codes of practice do not replace the law, but can help you understand what you need to do to comply with specific regulations and provide a healthy and safe workplace.

What will happen to codes of practice approved under the OSH and MSI acts? 

Transition arrangements allow for codes of practice approved under the Occupational Safety and Health Act 1984 and Mines Safety and Inspection Act 1994 to continue being in effect as if approved by the Minister under the WHS Act.

Codes of practice will be published on the department’s website after they are approved by the Minister.
