Managing Health & Safety Risks (No. 60): Stability during construction

Managing Health & Safety Risks (No. 60): Stability during construction

A review of CROSS (Confidential Reporting on Structural Safety) and press reports suggests that lack of stability during construction is a prime cause of accidents. In May 2016, the centre section of a new elevating bridge at Barton on the Manchester inner ring road in northwest England collapsed while being tested. The failure can be viewed online. While the cause has not yet been published, it is clear that the lifting process was uncontrolled. Other reports in CROSS discuss concerns about the stability of steel frames during concreting.
