Workplace Health and Safety Queensland
This code is intended to be read by a person conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU). It provides practical guidance for PCBUs, including those persons who design, construct, import, supply or install plant or structures, on how to eliminate, or if that is not possible, minimise the risk of falls from height in workplaces.
This code applies to all types of work and all workplaces covered by the WHS Act and the WHS Regulation where there is a risk of a fall by a person from one level to another that is reasonably likely to cause injury.
This code may be a useful reference for other persons interested in the duties under the WHS Act and the WHS Regulation.
