"The National Standard for Construction Work [NOHSC:1016 (2005)] (the National Standard), aims to protect persons from the hazards associated with construction work. This Code of Practice provides guidance to persons working in the general and residential construction sectors on the types of induction training that may be needed to provide construction workers with an awareness and understanding of common hazards on construction sites and how they should be managed."
In those jurisdictions that have implemented the harmonised Work Health and Safety (WHS) laws, this National Code of Practice has been superseded by the model WHS Regulations and the Model Code of Practice: Construction Work.
