Concrete pumping

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

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. 

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.
