Model Code of Practice – Labelling of Workplace Hazardous Chemicals

On 9 September 2015, Safe Work Australia released the revised model Code of Practice for Labelling of Workplace Chemicals. This model Code of Practice has been developed to provide practical guidance to persons conducting a business or undertaking involved in the manufacture, import, supply or use of hazardous chemicals on how to correctly label hazardous chemicals used in the workplace. To have legal effect in a jurisdiction, the model Code of Practice must be approved as a code of practice in that jurisdiction. To determine if this model Code of Practice has been approved as a code of practice in a particular jurisdiction, check with the relevant regulator. An amendments table advising the changes that have been made to this Code is included in the September 2015 version. The previous version is located on the historical versions page. The latest version is available at:  Labelling of Workplace Hazardous Chemicals Code of Practice
