The B30.27 standard went into effect on March 25, 2015 after years of evaluation and industry input. It was created to prevent or minimize injury to workers by prescribing safety requirements and outlines the standard for jobsite responsibilities for concrete material placing systems. With the B30.27-2014 standard in place, clear direction is given to all parties on the jobsite. Obtaining a hard copy of the standard is imperative, as the digital version will not allow printing or sharing with other computers.
