Transporters of Precast Concrete Issued Warning by WorkSafe WA


Transporters of precast concrete wall panels have been warned by WorkSafe WA to ensure they adhere safe work procedures when delivering these huge building products.

The work safety watchdog through its commissioner Lex McCulloch reminded employers to ensure they stick to the relevant Australian Standard and national Code of Practice.

Laws exist which cover the entire transportation and delivery process in WA under WorkSafe and others such as Chain of Responsibility fall under Main Roads WA jurisdiction.

In November two workers were crushed by a concrete panel being unloaded from a truck in Perth. Click here for more.
