Codes of practice provide information on a specific issue and help you achieve legal standards.
Remember, these codes don't cover every risk which may arise. It's best for you to consider all hazards connected to your work, not only those that are regulated.

But you need to make sure your approach gives the same or a higher standard of work health and safety than the relevant code of practice.
