Setting up in a public place
Before setting up in a public place, consultation needs to take place between the concrete pumper and principal contractor or person responsible about risks including:
- if approvals are required from local councils, these should be checked by the concrete pumper
- the public should be directed to an alternative footpath, and protective screens erected or fitted around the pump area to prevent concrete being splashed on the public
- lane closures and the erection of appropriate barricades and signs should comply with the requirements of the Department of Main Roads, Local Government Authorities and any relevant Building or Local Acts
Traffic control will be arranged by the contractor in consultation with the concrete pumper.
For more detailed information on the responsibilities about setting-up in a public place, check Section 4.2.3 of the Concrete Pumping Code of Practice 2005.
