Concrete pumping can be hazardous if you don’t plan and prepare adequately to manage risks.

Concrete pumping health and safety guidelines
This guidance provides practical advice about the safe operation and maintenance of concrete pumping equipment and the environment this equipment is used in.
There is also a range of other information available such as diagrams of hand signals and templates:
While this guidance has not been updated to reflect current work health and safety legislation (the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 and regulations), it may still contain relevant information and practices to keep workers and others healthy and safe.
Please read this guidance in conjunction with all relevant industry standards that apply to you as a PCBU. This guidance will be progressively reviewed and either updated, replaced with other guidance, or revoked.
