Draft code of practice open for public consultation
Date: Wednesday, 24 June 2020

The Commission for Occupational Safety and Health (COSH) seeks your feedback on the draft Code of Practice – Violence and aggression at work.

The draft code provides guidance to employers about developing plans and policies to manage and eliminate the risk of violent behaviours. Such behaviour includes physical assault, verbal abuse, threats and intimidation.

The code will apply to all workplaces in Western Australia with the exception of mining and petroleum operations.

Submissions close: 5.00 pm WST, Wednesday 23 September 2020. Please submit your views using the feedback template by email.

COSH developed the draft code under the Occupational Safety and Health Act 1984. The process included extensive consultation with employers, unions, government agencies, and health and safety experts.
