Abstract

Occupational safety of winter concreting work can be improved in the first place by carrying out the winter concreting operations with great care and in compliance with the instructions. It is of great important that concrete is heated sufficiently and heating is directed on the cold edges of a structure to achieve an even heat distribution. Attention should also be given to an increasing use of heat insulation an to the temperature measurements of concrete. By this means the strength development of concrete is controlled and the stripping strength of forms is verified. To facilitate a proper heating process one strength class higher nominal strength of the fresh concrete than required in the plans or a rapid hardening cement is used. In addition to the practical measures emphasis is placed on the planning and performance of the concreting operations carried out in co-operation with the foreman of concreting work, the structural design and the organisation of the construction firm. The occupational safety of winter concreting work is assured throng the measures taken in the right direction, one among these is a need for efficient training.
