Managing Health & Safety Risks (No. 58): Reinforcement cage collapses

Fixing reinforcement is one of the most basic tasks in construction. There are a number of hazards linked to this work phase and, perhaps surprisingly, they do not appear to be well appreciated among the design/construction community. Collapses of rebar arrangements prior to concreting have occurred and, in the worst cases, workers have been killed. Other incidents have been ‘near misses’.
