QTPA Member Alert | SAFE WORK AUSTRALIA “Public comment now open” (14/6/2012)

SAFE WORK AUSTRALIA “Public comment now open”

On Friday 8 June 2012 Safe Work Australia released 6 draft model work health and safety Codes of Practice and 2 guides for public comment.

As the Turf Industry utilise a number of these I felt you would find this of interest.

The codes released for public comment are:

  • Managing risks in forestry operations
  • Industrial lift trucks
  • Cranes
  • Amusement devices
  • Managing risks of plant used in rural workplaces
  • Managing security risks in the cash-in-transit industry.

The draft guides released for public comment are:

  • Guide for managing risks in cable logging, developed to support the draft code for forestry operations.
  • Guide for tunnelling.

The codes and guides can be accessed on the Safe Work Australia website.

The public comment period for these Codes of Practice closes on 24 August 2012.
