Code of practice for workplace safety and health management system for construction worksites


This standard is intended for worksites involved in the preparation, supervision and execution of construction works. It is also intended as a fundamental system approach for any organisation which has yet to establish a basic safety and health management system

It specifies the general requirements for a workplace safety and health (WSH) management system for worksites and gives guidance for its use, to enable organisations to provide safe and healthy workplaces, by preventing work-related injury and ill health.

This standard is applicable to any organisation in the construction industry that wishes to establish, implement and maintain a WSH management system to improve safety and health, eliminate hazards and minimise WSH risks (including system deficiencies), take advantage of WSH opportunities and address WSH management system nonconformities associated with its activities.
