PS 09 – Formwork and Falsework
The intent of this document is to eliminate or minimise the risks of fatalities, injuries and incidents arising from the erection, use of and dismantling of formwork and falsework at Laing O’Rourke workplaces.
Formwork is the surface, supports and framing used to define the shape of concrete until the concrete is self-supporting, and includes:
- the forms on which concrete is poured,
- the supports to withstand the loads imposed by the forms and concrete, and
- any bracing added to ensure stability
