Officials Codes of Practice – Sawmilling Industry Codes of Practice

This code of practice is designed as an aid in the prevention of injury to persons employed in NSW sawmills. The code covers the sawmilling process of all timber species used in the NSW Timber Industry including softwood, hardwood, red gum and cypress pine. It applies to all sizes of timber sawmills ranging from small bush mills to large, fully automated mills. The code should be used in conjunction with a risk management approach to determine which safety features and work systems are required to make a sawmill free from risks to health and safety as far as is practicable.
