If you are an employer, main contractor, or self-employed, you are required to provide a safe workplace for all workers, including yourself. This code provides practical guidance for businesses to meet obligations about protective clothing and equipment. This code includes requirements concerning:
- using personal protective clothing and equipment to minimise exposure to risk from workplace habits
- guidance on selecting, using, and storing protective clothing and equipment.
The guidance from this code should be considered alongside the laws and regulations on occupational health and safety. Compliance with this code is not mandatory but it will help you meet your legal obligations to provide a safe workplace.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance that may be required.
