This publication describes generic types of modern formwork system that are widely available, and considers their applications, advantages and main features related to health and safety and sustainability performance. They are engineered to provide increased accuracy and minimize waste in construction and most have heath and safety features built-in. The main systems in use are table form/flying form, system column formwork, horizontal and vertical panel systems, jump form, slip form, and tunnel form.
