Code of Practice for Falsework - some Comments

The background to the Code, to be published by the British Standards Institution as BS 5975, is described, together with the procedures adopted for writing it. The draft for public comment was prepared under the consultancy drafting scheme of the DOE, the draft being prepared in a relatively short period. The principles involved in the more controversial areas are set out, followed by an examination of the Code content as a whole. The paper concludes with a note concerning possible future action. Reasons for delay in producing the Code-the work of the Bragg Committee and the Code of Practice Committee for timber-are given. C.J. Wilshere
