    NOTE: RB = Risk Rating before controls implemented - RA = Risk Rating after controls are implemented.

    Planning 4A 2M Personal Injury: Assess site. Ensure:

    - Slips, trips, falls - Ground is firm and stable

    - Contact with high - Safe access/egress (free of tripping hazards)

    pressure fluids - Room for access equipment (cranes, hoists etc)

    - Hit by moving vehicle - No work within 3m of overhead electric lines

    - Electric shock - Concrete pump able to be positioned safely (allows for

    visual contact between pump operator and pour

    area, not positioned over or adjacent to previously Legislation breach: disturbed or back-filled land, excavations, trenches, - Failure to obtain pits etc and on level ground) permits - Defined pump washout area that complies with EPA and local laws Environmental Damage: - Method to collect concrete residue to prevent wash-off - Pollution from concrete entering sensitive areas (such as storm water residue. drains)

    - Compressed air and water lines are set-up to prevent

    damage and meet relevant Australian Standards

    - Lines can be placed in a safe manner without risk of

    movement or damage or run over by plant.

    - Workers are not exposed to site hazards (such as

    building work overhead, unsafe electrical

    installations, close proximity to moving

    plant/vehicles etc).

    - Underground assets are not impacted (dial before you

    dig)

    - Sufficient lighting

    - Sufficient warning signs and exclusion zones

    - Permit etc are obtained as required.

    Ensure:

NOTE: RB = Risk Rating before controls implemented - RA = Risk Rating after controls are implemented.

    Planning - continued 4A 2M Personal Injury: Obtain advice from competent persons (such as an engineer).

    - Slips, trips, falls Include:

    - Contact with high - Type of materials (pipes, clamps, anchor brackets) pressure fluids - Pressure requirements/limitations - Hit by moving vehicle - Instructions for layout of pipes and correct sequence - Electric shock - Type, number and placement of anchor points tie-

     downs, legs, bolts etc)

    Legislation breach: Determine access areas for concrete delivery and hopper.

    - Failure to obtain Ensure:

    permits - Ground is firm and stable with sufficient room.

     - Hopper positioned at correct height to allow for gravity

    flow into hopper (if ramps used, ensure non-slip, Environmental Damage:

    correctly spaced so that truck remains stable). - Pollution from concrete - Traffic management (for reversing vehicles, for residue. roadway obstruction and other factors as required)

    - Number of trucks kept to minimum ensure adequate

    communication. Use Spotter if required.

    - Clear of overhead electric lines. Use Spotter if

    required.

    - Seek council approvals as required.

    Ensure all equipment is in a safe condition. Conduct

    inspections before use. Ensure:

    - Pumps have guards in place, in good working order

    and regularly maintained

    - Hopper has guards/grill is place to prevent access to

    agitators and other moving parts

    - Emergency stop buttons in place for concrete delivery

    systems

    - Electrical equipment is rated for environment, RCDs

    are provided and cables/leads are in safe condition

    - PPE is clean, serviced and appropriate for task.

    - Rubber hoses are not damaged or cracked.

    Develop task specific SWMS.

    Preparation 3H 2M Personal Injury: Ensure permanently fitted legible identification on pieces.

    - Slips, trips, falls

    - Contact with high When laying a pipeline, ensure: pressure fluids - All pieces are inspected before use - Hit by moving vehicle - Unnecessary bends are avoided - Electric shock - Horizontal pipelines are adequately supported - Flexible hoses are not at risk of being run over/damaged

    - Each section of pipe in a vertical pipeline is supported to

    avoid extra load on the pipe clamp

    - The 90 degree bend at the base altering the direction of

    the concrete line from horizontal to vertical is equipped

    with a firmly sitting leg on the ground sufficient to stop

    any movement in the vertical line which may snap off

    the first clamp

    - Vertical lines are secured to the building

    - Cranes or hoist towers, scaffolding or formwork are not

    used to secure the line (may not be capable of taking

    the impact load when pumping concrete through line)

    - Metal pipes and pipeline components are identified and

    checked in accordance with AS2550.15.

    For Quick release pipe clamps, ensure:

    - Able to sustain the maximum concrete pressure applied

    to line

    - Locking pins are present and secured (do not use

    clamps without locking pins)

    - Regularly inspected for wear or fatigue

    - Damaged clamps are not used

    - Clamps are locked as per manufacturers instructions

    (not by hammering the lever)

    Ensure piping in kept in parallel to ground when setting up

    near overhead electric lines. Use spotter as required.

    Concrete Delivery 3H 2M Personal Injury: Delivery vehicle to park in designated area and follow traffic

    - Hit by moving vehicle management for site.

    Ensure:

    - Trucks only reverse if visual contact can be made with

    Spotter (or nominated person)

    - No persons to stand between reversing truck and

    hopper

    - Concrete chute only be moved when truck is

    stationary. Communicate with driver as required.

    Operation 3H 2M Personal Injury:

    - Slips, trips, falls Operate pump as per manufacturer’s specifications.

    - Contact with high pressure fluids Do not leave pump unattended. - Hit by moving vehicle Ensure pump flow rates match discharge rates of delivery trucks.

    Follow site specific SWMS and work directions.

    Check pipelines continuously for unusual movement, shaking

    or pressure release.

    Where excessive pipe movement occurs due to the surging

    action of the pump:

    - Use extra anchorage to restrict the line movement,

    especially at bends and elbows, or

    - Install a short wire-braided high pressure rubber hose

    between the concrete pump and pipelines in

    accordance the manufacturer’s recommendations.

    Line cleaning 3H 2M Personal Injury: Follow manufactures instructions. Ensure:

    - Contact with fluid - Unessential persons removed from area, especially

    under pressure discharge end

    - All persons to wear required PPE

    - High pressure water (not air) is used

    - Air-relief valves are present and working

    - Relieve pressure before dismantling

    - Don’t leave unattended until internal pressure is gone

    - Remove rubber hose at end and secure all parts to

    prevent accidental movement

    - Suitable catchment device/receptacle (such as

    concrete truck bowl) is used

    Pump cleaning 3H 2M Personal Injury: Ensure guards in place.

    - Entanglement

    Ensure hopper is isolated from power, any accumulated

    hydraulic or air pressure is released, and the hopper cannot be

    accidentally energized before persons enter or insert any body

    parts for cleaning, repairs, or removing blockages.

    Clean as per manufacturers’ instructions.

    Maintenance 4A 2M Personal Injury: Ensure all equipment undergoes regular maintenance as

    - Slips, trips, falls required by manufacturer.

    - Contact with high pressure fluids Regular pipe testing must be undertaken as per AS2550.15. - Hit by moving vehicle - Electric shock Ensure pipe log books are maintained detailing wall thickness and pressure details (as per AS 1418.15). Environmental Damage:

    - Pollution from concrete

    residue.
