Site Information and assistance

This model Code of Practice applies to all types of work and all workplaces covered by the WHS Act and Regulations applying in a jurisdiction where there is the potential for exposure to noise that can contribute to hearing loss. It has been developed to provide practical guidance to persons conducting a business or undertaking on how noise affects hearing, how to identify and assess exposure to noise and how to control health and safety risks arising from hazardous noise. 

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.
