Safe design and working operation of formwork (Draft)

This Guide provides practical information on the safe design and working operation of slip, jump and travelling forms. It is part of a series of guides for formwork and falsework that includes the:

  • „„ General guide for formwork and falsework
  • „„ Guide to formwork
  • „„ Guide to falsework, and
  • „„ Information Sheet: Formwork and falsework.


While most of the following information in this Guide applies to slip and jump forms, some of the principles may also apply to travelling and crane-lifted forms incorporating working platforms and enclosed cells in which people are required to work. This is because the work systems and layout of these forms may present similar hazards and risks as with slip and jump forms.
