Managing the risks of plant
Plant is a major cause of workplace death and injury in Australian workplaces. There are significant risks associated with using plant and severe injuries can result from the unsafe use of plant.
The code for managing the risks of plant provides practical guidance on how to manage health and safety risks of plant once it is in the workplace,
from plant installation, commissioning and use through to decommissioning and dismantling. It also includes information about specific control measures required under the WHS Regulations for plant generally.
