SafeWork NSW updates to codes of practice

SafeWork NSW has updated 23 NSW Codes of Practice, now available for download on their website.

Codes of practice provide detailed information that can assist businesses and employers to apply best practice in their workplace.

The codes were revised by Safe Work Australia and come into effect in NSW on 30 August 2019 and align with the model codes of practice developed under the harmonised work health and safety legislation.
