Workers are not required to start or continue to work out in the rain. If there is other work available within your classification and in a dry safe area, your employer can transfer you to work on another area of the site or to another work site.
If a concrete pour has already commenced, the pour can continue until finished but all affected workers must be provided with wet weather gear and paid at the rate of double time. If a workers clothes becomes wet as a result of working in the rain during a concrete pour, the worker will be allowed to go home for the remainder of the day without loss of pay. If in doubt you can speak to your delegate, HSR on site or contact us.
