Revised construction code released
The revised draft code of practice for construction work has been released by Safe Work Australia.
As reported in the previous e-bulletin the model code of practice for construction work is being changed to include additional guidance on housing construction, but the revised draft code was yet to be released.
However, the changes to the code are now available.
They include more examples of housing construction work.
Terms such as ‘housing construction work’, ‘builder’ and ‘owner-builder’ have been clarified further.
A revised safe work method statement template to clarify its use for high-risk work, a work health and safety management plan template and additional guidance on the duties of designers are also included.
The draft code is open for public until Wednesday 2 October.
