What is this about?More than 6000 people work in the concrete construction services industry and, in this industry, formworkers (and other structural trade workers) are twice as likely to have an injury resulting in more than six months off work.
Falling from a height is the number one cause of death and permanent disability in the formwork industry. Formworkers are susceptible to falls from heights, as well as being hit by falling objects and muscular stress.
The draft code aims to provide practical guidance for persons conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU) and demonstrate how to manage work health and safety risks related to formwork and falsework.
