Archived Prevention Manual - July 1, 2012 - December 31, 2012
This edition of the Prevention Manual reflects the following updates.
Deletion of Occupational Health and Safety ("OHS") Policy R20.40-1 — effective July 1, 2012
The ongoing review of Occupational Health and Safety (“OHS”) policies identified an obsolete policy, R20.40-1. The policy required concrete pump outriggers to be extended as far as possible when they could not be fully extended. This could potentially lead to outrigger failure.
At their May 2012 meeting, WorkSafeBC’s Board of Directors approved the deletion of the policy from the Prevention Manual, (summary of amendments) effective July 1, 2012. The Board of Directors’ resolution is available for reference.
OHS Guideline G20.40 addresses the issue more comprehensively and does not require partial extension of outriggers.
