This code of practice is a Compliance Code. Compliance Codes are made to provide practical guidance to persons who have occupational health and safety duties or obligations. Compliance with this code of practice is not mandatory. However, meeting the requirements of a compliance code means that you have fulfilled your occupational health and safety duties and obligations in relation to the matters covered by the compliance code.
As this code is based on the 2007 regulations, it does not yet reflect the changes introduced by the new regulations. Complying with this code may not necessarily mean compliance with your duties and obligations.
