Work Health and Safety (Formwork) Code of Practice 2011 - Australian Capital Territory

Description

You must comply with this code if you intend to operate a business that is involved in erecting or dismantling formwork and associated equipment. The code lists requirements for the design, planning, preparation and conduct of work related to erecting and dismantling formwork and associated equipment.

Formwork is a high risk activity as it usually involves working at heights over rough, uneven and potentially unstable terrain. Formwork may also involve multi-storey work where there is risk of structural collapse or objects falling on workers and bystanders. Please consult the Contact Officer for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance (if any) that may be required.
