Code of Practice on the safe design of structures 2013.
The code provides practical guidance to persons conducting a business or undertaking
(PCBUs) who design structures that will be used, or could reasonably be expected to be used,
as a workplace. This includes architects, building designers and engineers.
This code is also relevant for anyone making decisions that influence the design outcome, such
as clients, developers and builders.
This code applies to the design of ‘structures’ defined under the WHS Act to mean anything that
is constructed, whether fixed or moveable, temporary or permanent, and includes:
* buildings, masts, towers, framework, pipelines, transport infrastructure and underground
works (shafts or tunnels)
* any component of a structure
* part of a structure.
