BS 5975:2006 gives recommendations for the design use of falsework on construction sites. This code has drawn together all those aspects that need to be considered when preparing a falsework design, and in so doing has included recommendations for material, design and work on site. Because the success of falsework is closely tied up with its management, this code also describes procedures as well as technical aspects.
