Labelling of Workplace Hazardous Chemicals

This model Code of Practice has been developed to provide practical guidance to persons conducting a business or undertaking involved in the manufacture, import, supply or use of hazardous chemicals on how to correctly label hazardous chemicals used in the workplace.

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.

This Code has been revised and republished in March 2015. An amendments table advising the changes that have been made to this Code is included in the March 2015 version.

The previous version is located on the Safe Work Australia historical versions page.

The PDF and Word versions of this Code will be replaced with accessible versions as soon as is possible.
