Safety Blitz and our Top Three Questions

Safework NSW targeting unsafe concreting practices

SafeWork NSW has stated that they will be cracking down on unsafe concreting practices over the next three months, and we want all of our readers to be prepared and ensure they have the correct systems in place to keep workers safe.

The on-site inspections will focus on formwork and concrete placing equipment risks.

This is a reminder that working with concrete and formwork can be extremely dangerous if proper safety measures are not followed. Every year, contractors across Australia are injured or killed while working with concrete and formwork.

There are a few key safety considerations to keep in mind:

  • Ensure edge protection and covers are in place to prevent falls
  • Safe distances to overhead power lines
  • Be aware of your surroundings and know where potential hazards are located
  • Inspect concrete forms and scaffolding before use to ensure they are in good condition
  • A competent person has signed off before pouring concrete
  • All workers are adequately trained, instructed, and supervised.

Don't get caught out!

Let us help you keep your workers safe and your business compliant. We have a range of templates and tools to help you meet your obligations. Visit our website today and take a look at our WHS documents and resources.
