SAFETY BULLETIN 66 USE OF WOOD FORMS FOR SUPPORT OF
CONCRETE- BUILDINGS UNDER CONSTRUCTION

The construction progresses by pouring one concrete floor every other day.

The method of forming the poured concrete floors consists of 5/8" or 3/4" plywood held in place by 4" x 4" wood studs. One shoring stud is placed every four feet on center extending from the floor to the underside of the plywood form above.

Construction of this type could cause a problem to units operating at a fire within the building,due to the heavy fire load. This fire load is created by the storage of sheets of plywood and wood studs previously stripped from a cured floor. This lumber is usually found stored on the floor which is two levels below the most recently poured floor and will serve as the forms for the next floor to be poured.

It is required that every floor that has been stripped of its supporting plywood forms and is in its curing stage be reshored. This reshoring of one 4" x 4" stud placed every eight feet will usually be found on at least eight floors below the most recently poured floor.
