The General guide for formwork and falsework provides information for persons conducting a business or undertaking on how to manage formwork and falsework risks at a workplace.
This Guide is supported by specific formwork and falsework guides for:
- formwork, and
- slip, jump and travelling forms.
The Information Sheet: Formwork and falsework has also been developed to provide advice for small businesses and workers on managing formwork and falsework risks in the workplace.
The word ‘should’ is used in these documents to indicate a recommended course of action, while ‘may’ is used to indicate an optional course of action.
The words ‘must’, ‘requires’ or ‘mandatory’ indicate that a legal requirement exists in the WHS laws and must be complied with.
(These documents were published without all accessibility requirements for electronic documents met. Accessible word and PDF versions that meet all accessibility requirements are now available. These versions replace the previous ‘inaccessible’ versions.)
