The GPDA has created guidance which is intended to assist with planning the safe handling of plasterboard.
Such planning should start early, consider all stages of the build process in which plasterboard will be moved, and use the established ‘hierarchy of controls’ in the correct order. This process will involve considering the specific plasterboard product(s) used, the site layout and management, and the equipment used to move them if any. The selection of solutions, methods and equipment can be broken down into particular tasks and stages of construction.
