WorkSafe has released the Good Practice Guidelines ‘Safe Work with Precast Concrete’ to replace the Approved Code of Practice for the ‘Safe Handling, Transportation and Erection of Precast Concrete’.
Importantly, this GPG aligns with the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 (HSWA). The GPG reminds all upstream PCBUs, along with the crane driver, that even if they have no contractual relationship with another PCBU they may still share overlapping duties when they work on the same site. Where duties are shared, the PCBUs must consult, cooperate with, and coordinate activities with other PCBUs. (See Section 34 of HSWA for more information.)
