Concrete pumping

Concrete pumping has caused serious incidents in recent years through: 

  • concrete boom failure 

  • contact between booms and overhead powerlines 

  • whipping of delivery hoses 

  • hazardous moving parts. 

Health and safety risks for workers can occur when setting up and using concrete placing equipment and when working with wet concrete. 

As a person conducting a business or undertaking, you have a duty to keep workers and your workplace safe from the risks of concrete pumping.
