This is the third presentation in the PDCA 2020 Annual Conference Webinar Series.
Working Platforms update presented by:
Peggy Hagerty Duffy, P.E., D.GE, Hagerty Engineering
Terry Holman, PhD, P.E., Geosyntec Consultants
This presentation will educate contractors and deep foundation professionals on the details of the Working Platforms Recommended Industry Practices guide which is a publication from the joint effort of the Industry-Wide Working Platforms Working Group (WPWG), a collaboration between ADSC, Deep Foundations Institute (DFI), and the Pile Driving Contractors Association (PDCA). This document is the product of several years of work and input from individuals and companies in all roles in the foundation construction arena safety specialists, contractors, engineers, and equipment suppliers. The purpose of the Working Platforms webinar is to present discussion about the administrative procedure to institutionalize a clear method for ensuring that safe Working Platforms are in place for foundation construction equipment. This webinar will discuss the document that serves as a suggested framework by which allocation of responsibility can be communicated and determined long before work is performed on the jobsite.
