The Code provides information for duty holders about meeting their obligations under Part 3.5 of the OHS Regulations, as well as providing information about how to identify hazards and controls risks associated with plant used in a workplace. This Code also provides information for duty holders about compliance with the OHS Act where relevant (for example, an employer’s duty to consult with employees).
It is not possible for this Code to deal with every risk associated with the use of plant in the workplace that a duty holder might encounter. The guidance in this Code needs to therefore be considered with regard to the particular characteristics and circumstances of the workplace.
