2014 TCA Convention

Who’s Responsible? The Addition of Responsibilities to the Concrete Pump Safety Standard

Rob Edwards, NationsBuilders Insurance Services (NBIS)


In 2014, changes to ASME B30.27 - the American National Standard for Safety of Material Placement Systems (Concrete Pumps and Telebelts) in the United States - will be published. The effective date of the standard is one year after publication.

For the first time, the standard contains the responsibilities of everyone involved in placing material using a concrete pump or Telebelt - from the general contractor to the ready mix driver - and everyone in between. Some of the topics covered include: providing a proper setup location, training requirements of each party, inspection of systems, expectations of the mix, and operation in the vicinity of power lines.

About the TCA

Founded in 1986, the Tilt-Up Concrete Association (TCA) strives to improve the quality and acceptance of site-cast Tilt-Up construction, a method in which concrete wall panels are cast on-site and tilted into place. Tilt-Up construction is one of the fastest growing industries in the United States, combining the advantages of reasonable cost with low maintenance, durability, speed of construction and minimal capital investment. At least 10,000 buildings, enclosing more than 650 million square feet, are constructed each year using this construction method.
