National Occupational Health and Safety Commission:
Code of Practice for the Management and Control of Asbestos in Workplaces [NOHSC:2018 (2005)]
This code of practise has been the bases for the management of asbestos in most states of Australia until recently – 2011/2012. Now Western Australia is the only state in Australia that relies solely on this code.
All other states except Victoria have accepted the harmonisation transition and moved forward to the new Work Health and Safety Act 2011 and the Work Health and Safety Regulation 2011.
