Concrete Pump Inspections

Legislation Update – Concrete Pump Inspections

After the recent WorkSafe H&S presentation on Friday, 7th of March, BVT staff were made aware of confusion out in the concrete industry about the requirements for concrete pumps.

There is a guideline on the health and safety issues around concrete pumping – refer to our downloads section for a copy, or to the WorkSafe site at www.business.govt.nz/worksafe

Section 7.2 requires annual inspections to be carried out by a competent person such as a chartered professional engineer. WorkSafe Inspectors mentioned a lack of expertise within Australasia to carry out these inspections.

BVT have the capability to do these inspections and we encourage you (or someone you know) who requires an inspection to be done to contact us.
