Compliance Code Reviews:

Members are advised of the publishing of a number of Compliance Codes by WorkSafe Victoria – resulting from an extensive consultation and public comment process, which CCF has contributed towards through representation on the relevant working groups.

The Codes that have been published in recent weeks, and which are relevant to CCF members, are:

  • Compliance code: Hazardous manual handling
  • Compliance code: Plant
  • Compliance code: Confined spaces
  • Compliance code: Facilities in construction
  • Compliance code: Noise

The five new codes align to the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations 2017 (OHS Regulations).

Copies of the new codes can be downloaded from the WorkSafe website – CLICK HERE.

As the Compliance Codes are quite large and numerous, it would be impractical to attempt to summarise them all here. Instead, we have provided the following links to a Summary of proposed key changes to the respective Compliance Codes – CLICK HERE. This will also give an overview of the key changes to published Codes as well as those still under review.

If you have any questions regarding the changes and/or consultation process undertaken, don’t hesitate to contact CCF’s OHS Consultant, Peter Kaneen on 0427 855 208 or Email at peter@btsglobal.com.au
