Controlling noise and fumes

Controlling noise

Excessive noise in a workplace can cause industrial deafness. Operator of concrete pumps and associated equipment should be provided with hearing protection if the noise is in excess of the noise exposure limits.

Controlling fumes

Exhaust gases from concrete delivery trucks, concrete pumps and internal combustion engines can cause illness or death. If the concrete delivery truck is placed in an enclosed area, ventilation must be maintained or exhaust gases extracted.

For more detailed information on controlling the risks of excessive noise and fumes, check Section 4.4.2 of the Concrete Pumping Code of Practice 2005.
