2014 TCA Convention

Twenty Items You Must Cover in Your Pre-Erection Safety Meeting

Gary Fischer, President of Woddland Construction Company

 

We all know that the “Big Day” on a Tilt-Up project is the day that panel lifting commences. It is also one of the most critical events in time where all safety practices and procedures are adhered to in order to assure everyone’s well being, and to provide the customer with the confidence in you, as well as the system of Tilt Up construction.

This short program will discuss some of the impactful practices that will help for a safe and successful erection process, some of which may appear minor in nature, but can have significant impact on the outcome.

Some of the topics we will discuss in detail include:

  • Hazard identification, whether underground or overhead,
  • Experience of crew and individual crew member assignments,
  • Critical Lift Plan review,
  • Limited Access Zones,
  • Rigging identification and inspection,
  • Sequencing and unusual circumstances,
  • and more!

With careful planning and consistent safety practices, we can all provide our internal and external customers with positive and rewarding experiences that will continue to enhance our industry…and will have them coming back for more!

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.
