A series of guides have been developed to provide information for persons conducting a business or undertaking and workers on the safe design, manufacture, import and supply of plant.
The guides are:
- Guide for safe design of plant
- Guide for manufacturing safe plant
- Guide for importing and supplying safe plant
The Information Sheet: Plant Designers, Manufacturers, Importers and Suppliers has also been developed to provide advice for small businesses and workers who design, manufacture, import and supply plant.
The word ‘should’ is used in these documents to indicate a recommended course of action, while ‘may’ is used to indicate an optional course of action.
The words ‘must’, ‘requires’ or ‘mandatory’ indicate that a legal requirement exists in the Work Health and Safety laws and must be complied with.
(These documents were published without all accessibility requirements for electronic documents met. Accessible word and PDF versions that meet all accessibility requirements are now available. These versions replace the previous ‘inaccessible’ versions.)
