Guidance on Safety in Concrete Pumping
The aim of this guidance is to improve standards of safety during concrete pumping and reduce the incidence of collapse of concrete pump rigs and injuries due to incidents involving pressurisation of pipework or other equipment. As with all construction equipment, the safe operation of concrete pumps depends on a number of factors including the selection and maintenance of the pump and placing boom, the planning and supervision of their use and the competence of the operator and other personnel. If any of these are deficient, the risk of a serious accident increases significantly, so it is essential...
Exploring the human and physical factors associated with telescopic handler overturning risks
A combination of machine instability and various human factors elements are important precipitating factors in telescopic handler overturn incidents. Industry guidance makes a number of assumptions about the impact of operator “knowledge gaps”, however the link between operator knowledge gaps and overturn risk is, at present, hypothetical and remains empirically untested. This study was done to identify: - the full range of human factors issues that might potentially contribute to telescopic handler overturn incidents; - the human factors issues that appear to be most important in terms...
AHP-based analysis of the risk potential of safety incidents
Case study of cranes in the construction industry The use of data collected from near-miss reports has added value to safety in high-hazard industries such as aviation and the process industry, but this procedure has not yet taken root in construction management practice. Although the management of near-miss reporting systems and the collection of near-miss event reports have been the focus of recent research efforts, the structural analyses of reports have not yet been investigated. This paper reports on a multi-phase research that studied near misses related to crane work and their safety risk...
Ergonomic design of crane cabin interior
The path to improved safety Many procedures in the development process of crane cabins today are still based on the specific experience of manufacturers and historical guidelines. It is not surprising that they fail to meet the needs of a large proportion of operators. Accordingly, the need for more objective, theoretically justified and consistent models, that will minimize crane operators' biomechanical and visual problems through anthropometric characteristic analysis to improve safety and prevent crane related fatalities and injuries, arises. In that aim we firstly identified the critical...
Equipment to improve underground construction safety
An innovative manipulator has been developed to improve safety and productivity in underground construction. Suitable for the mining and building industries, the equipment provides a solution to the significant safety issue of personnel working with suspended loads, especially in confined underground work areas. Local mining contractor Redpath Australia has developed a machine capable of erecting steel beams in underground mines at a much safer and faster rate than the current process using cranes.

Secteur des affaires municipales au Québec - Étude exploratoire du cadenassage
En septembre 2008, la CSST a révélé que six décès et plus de 5 000 accidents ont lieu annuellement lors de travaux d’installation, d’entretien et de réparation effectués sur des machines mal ou non cadenassées. En raison de la nature des travaux qu’ils sont appelés à exécuter, des équipements et des machines qu’ils utilisent, les travailleurs du secteur des affaires municipales sont concernés par le cadenassage. Le secteur des affaires municipales emploie près de 80 000 travailleurs...
Maintenance sûre des outils portables dans la construction
E-fact 54 La maintenance peut être définie comme le fait de travailler sur une chose pour la conserver dans un état fonctionnel et sûr et la préserver de tout dysfonctionnement ou déclin. Cette «chose» peut être un lieu de travail, un équipement de travail ou un moyen de transport (p. ex. un bateau). La maintenance ne relève pas de la responsabilité exclusive des installateurs et des mécaniciens. Elle concerne pratiquement tous les travailleurs et pratiquement tous les environnements de travail. La santé...
IPAF launches MEWP/AWP incident database
The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) has begun a systematic project to collect worldwide data on accidents/incidents involving mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs), also known as aerial work platforms (AWPs), with the aim of improving the safe use of equipment. Manufacturers, rental companies, contractors and users are encouraged to report any known MEWP accidents or incidents using the standard form that is available at www.ipaf.org/accident . In the initial phase, IPAF is calling for reports of any known serious accidents and fatalities involving MEWPs in the UK, and any known...
Safety notice – Mobile crushing plant
There is potential, on some mobile crushers, for unintended movement of a machine track if an earth/ground fault occurs because of damage to the outer sheath and insulation of the electrical cable that controls the proportional control valve for the track. There is potential, on some mobile crushers, for unintended movement of a machine track if an earth/ground fault occurs because of damage to the outer sheath and insulation of the electrical cable that controls the proportional control valve for the track. This can result in unintended movement of the machine track(s) and the potential for injuries...
