Title: The Erection of Precast Concrete in Buildings in Australia
Appears on pages(s):
Abstract:Currently in Australia, we have four separate Codes of Practice covering the erection of Precast and Tiltup Concrete walls in buildings. Except in two States, design for erection is not required and none of the Codes of Practice cover precast flooring and horizontal elements or civil products. Accidents have occurred in the past and will occur in the future but the current approach is ad hoc, inappropriate and unsatisfactory. The current National Code of Practice prepared by Australian Safety and Compensation Council is inadequate, needs rewriting and must not be adopted by the States and Territories in its current form. It is an issue, the concrete industry and precast industry needs to address if this code is to be adopted.
