#TM-PLATFORMS Guide to Working Platforms
EFFC and DFIEFFC/DFI Working Platforms Task Group table of contents
PDF; 175 pages; illustrated

On a typical construction site, the provision of a safe surface to work on involves and affects a number of the contracting parties (the client; principal designer; general contractor; specialty contractor; platform designer; platform installer or earthworks contractor; platform tester and platform maintainer), and as a consequence, the organisation of its design, installation and maintenance can be complex. As it concerns money and liability it is often a contentious issue, but nonetheless one that needs to be addressed. This document takes each step in turn and describes what good practice is, with reference to documents and resources that have been made available through the EFFC and DFI. In compiling this information responses have been collated from foundation contractors from; France, United Kingdom, the Czech Republic, Germany, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Sweden, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Hungary, Italy and Sweden, USA and Canada.
