Foundry code of practice 2004 - Queensland


You will need to comply with this code if you undertake foundry work. Foundry work is the process of making a metal casting of an object by pouring molten metal into a mould. There are two types of foundries:

  • Ferrous foundries produce iron and steel castings.
  • Non-ferrous foundries produce castings of copper-based alloys (brass, bronze and copper), aluminium-based alloys (lead, zinc, nickel, magnesium) and other alloys.

This code provides practical guidance on how to comply with your work health and safety duties, including effective ways to identify and manage risks.

You will either need to comply with this code or an alternative method that sets an equivalent or higher standard of work health and safety.
