Part 32 Excavating and Tunnelling

Section 460 Dumping block

Dumping blocks are required where equipment may back into or over a dump location. The dumping point may include hoppers, stock piles or waste dumps. Dumps of this type can be very high and a flip-over or rollover could cause serious injury. To reduce the risk to workers and their equipment, physical barriers are required to assist in stopping.
