New WA workplace Codes of Practice released

The WA Minister for Worksafe has approved a series of 23 Work Health and Safety codes of practice that came into effect in July 2022.

These codes have been adapted for Western Australian work health and safety environments from the Model Codes of Practice published by Safe Work Australia, developed through consultation with unions and employer organisations.

Approved codes of practice are guidelines and provide the standard to identify, assess and control hazards in a workplace.

Codes that apply to fishing include:

  • How to Manage Workplace Safety and Risks
  • First Aid
  • Fatigue Management / Working Hours
  • Confined spaces
  • Man Overboard
  • Managing Plant in the Workplace
