Introducing new occupational health and safety compliance codes

The occupational health and safety compliance codes (codes) provide duty holders with practical guidance on how to comply with their legal requirements under the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations 2017 (OHS Regulations.) 

As part of the review and remake of the OHS Regulations in 2017, the codes that align with the regulations were also reviewed. Eight new codes for hazardous manual handling, hazardous substances, plant confined spaces, demolition, facilities in construction, excavation, and noise are now available.

This session is a deep dive into the new codes, including the key features and what's new, to help you be compliant with Victoria's occupational health and safety legislation.
